Al Ain and UAE national team star Omar Abdulrahman is set to arrive in Europe this summer, though the youngster has yet to confirm where he will move.

His departure was all but confirmed by Al Ain manager Cosmin Olaroiu in a recent interview with The National on the player’s future.

Olaroiu said: Yes, Omar deserves it. He's a fantastic player whose place is abroad and I hope he's going to do this. I hope he gets what he deserves as he'll provide a good image for UAE football and the country."

The player was previously on trial with Manchester City while Benfica and Arsenal have also been linked with the UAE player following a string of impressive displays for the national team at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Omar Abdulrahman is meanwhile relishing the opportunity to play in Europe – regardless of where he may end up.

"I see everywhere as a challenge, so if teams are coming from the English Premier League, Italy's Serie A or the Spanish La Liga, I'd wish to play in any of them," he says. "There are lots of players who people say can't cope in certain leagues but end up doing well.

"But of all, the competition in Spain would probably be best. I believe I can play there."
