FC Copenhagen striker Andreas Cornelius has admitted that he would be interested in a move to the Premier League after numerous reports emerged linking him with Manchester United and Arsenal.

The 19-year-old has been in prolific form this season and has scored 14 league goals in just 20 appearances to help FC Copenhagen build a 12 point lead over FC Nordsjaelland at the top of the table.

Cornelius has only become a fixture in the side this season after coming through the youth system at the Danish club but has already demonstrated his promise domestically and in the Europa League where he played throughout the group stages.

Sky Sports has reported that Arsenal and Manchester United have both been alerted to the strikers potential, while Italian clubs Inter Milan and Juventus have also been mentioned as potential suitors.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has never shied away from recruiting young players and it recent seasons has signed the likes of Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Nick Powell, David de Gea and Angelo Henriquez.

Arsenal have also been keen to sign the best talent at a young age and previously managed to convince Danish forward Nicklas Bendtner to make the move to England when he was just 18-years-old.

Cornelius has drawn some comparisons to Bendtner because of his impressive physique and good record for Denmark at youth level. Both men are 6ft 4" and forced their way into the senior side when they were still teenagers.

The Copenhagen striker already has three caps for Denmark and has admitted that he desperately wants to play in England at some stage in his career.

"I think that the Premier League is the best league in the world and I would love to play there," Cornelius told Bold dk. "It would be like a dream coming true. But there is still a long way and I still have plenty to learn.

"I have a contract with Copenhagen for the next four years so that seems like a good time frame for me, although things change quickly in football so you never know."

Cornelius is under contract until the summer of 2016 but it seems from his comments that he would be interested if a Premier League club came calling.
