Brentford summer signing Bryan Mbeumo has said that he holds the ambition to play in the Premier League, admitting that he sees the Championship as the best stepping stone to make his way to Griffin Park.

Attacker Bryan Mbeumo has only been at Brentford a matter of months, joining from French side ES Troyes AC earlier this summer. However, the Frenchman has now said that he is keeping a close eye on his future, with his move to Brentford playing a big part in his plans for the future.

Speaking to French outlet L’Est Eclair (as cited by Football League World), Mbeumo has said that he is hoping to play in the Premier League in the future, admitting that he made the move to the Championship with Brentford with one eye on his hopes of a move to the Premier League.

“Brentford, it’s a nice opportunity. I liked everything over there: the project, the infrastructure… It’s true that it’s a league that makes you dream, but my ambition is greater, it’s to get to the Premier League.”

When asked if he believes if he is capable of making the step up to the Premier League, Mbeumo replied:

“Is the Championship the best stepping stone for that? Yes. We’ve already seen Neal Maupay this summer. I didn’t hesitate to go there.”

Mbeumo has been largely used as a substitute in the early stages of this season, playing in six games across all competitions, scoring one goal and providing one assist against Derby County.
