Swansea striker Michu has admitted he would like to play for a "big team" as the Spaniard pursues his dream of playing in the Champions League.

Michu scored 22 times in his debut season in the Premier League and has added six this campaign, and league leaders Arsenal - whose only recognised strikers are Olivier Giroud and Nicklas Bendtner - are reported admirers.

And the 27-year-old has admitted it would be hard to turn down such a move.

"Every player dreams about playing in big teams, clubs who play in the Champions League and fight for titles," he is quoted as saying in the Metro. "I am no different.

"I'm very happy at Swansea but it is obvious that every player wants to grow up and see how far you can go."
