Liverpool and Arsenal target keen on Prem return

The Rangers star has previously had spells at Crewe Alexandra, Sheffield Wednesday and Charlton Athletic.

The 27-year-old is expected to leave Rangers this summer and has been linked with the likes of Hamburg, Liverpool and Arsenal.

“I am tired after the World Cup so I want to have a holiday and recharge for next season,” Bougherra told Sky Sports.

“First of all I am a Rangers player, my contract runs until 2012, so I am fine there.

“I heard that Hamburg and Arsenal are interested through the papers, but there is nothing official as yet.

“I would choose the Premier League if I had a choice, I love the English mentality and their football is the best.

“I want to test myself against the likes of (Wayne) Rooney, (Didier) Drogba, (Fernando) Torres and (Emmanuel) Adebayor as those guys let you know what level you are at.

“For me, it is also time for pay back because I don’t think a lot of people remember that I played in the Premier League with Charlton.”
