The striker joined Chinese Super League club Henan Jianye from Danish side Aalborg in 2017 after winning the Africa Cup of Nations with Cameroon and being named the player of the tournament.
However, he has expressed his ambition to play in the Premier League, with Arsenal in particular the club he would most like to join.
“Yes, it’s still a dream for me to come back to Europe,” Bassogog said exclusively to Goal.
“I would like to play in the biggest league in the world, in the Premier League. My favourite club since I was very small is Arsenal. I like playing with the ball and this club suits me. When I was a child, Thierry Henry was a model for me. It’s someone who impressed me a lot.”
Following a serious ankle injury to Danny Welbeck, Arsenal could well be in the market for a forward in January and Bassogog will hope to turn the club’s attentions to him. He has scored six goals and registered three assists this season.
Bassogog also spoke about Cameroon’s appointment of Patrick Kluivert and Clarence Seedorf as coaches for the national side, which he believes to be a positive move for the nation.
“From a personal point of view, I think it’s a very good thing. These are two great legends. They will motivate young players to surpass themselves.
