FAISSAL El Bakhtaoui, the in-demand Dunfermline striker, feels he is ready to make an impact at one of the big clubs in the Ladbrokes Premiership. The 23-year-old, of French-Moroccan descent, was brought to Scottish football by Jim Jefferies in July 2012 from the French futsal ranks but has become a huge asset in the 11-a-side game, scoring 30 goals in 40 appearances as the Fife club won League One by a distance this season. Out of contract this summer, Dunfermline appear resigned to lose his services, with Aberdeen, Motherwell, Hibs and Fleetwood Town all linked.with the player. There have also been whispers that Rangers are monitoring the situation.

"There are two weeks left of the season and I know there is a lot of speculation about me," said El Bakhtaoui, named in the four-man shortlist for the PFA Scotland League One player of the year award. "Some clubs are interested but nothing has happened yet.

"Dunfermline have not offered me a new contract yet but I have been talking to my agent about a new deal and stuff like that," he added. "I will meet my agent when the season is finished and we will take things from there.

"I am happy at Dunfermline and it is a good changing room and I get on great with the lads. But I feel that I am ready to play in the big division in Scotland. The Premiership matches attract great crowds and the fans are good but I believe I could play at that level."
