"We will challenge for the title next season if we carry on how we are now", said the 26-year-old.

The Spanish trio of Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid and Barcelona are all in the running to sign the young attacker. "Obviously it's three teams who have been far ahead but we've beaten Tottenham so we know that we're capable of that but we need the consistency".

"We have a vision and a picture of how we want to look in a few years, we have to think long term but also short term".

'Next year you always hope, of course.
