Khan, who has fought just twice in the last two years, is set to name his next opponent in the coming days but says he would love a clash with Brook at some stage.

However, the Bolton man is in no hurry to face his compatriot, with both boxers still holding out hope of taking on either Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao, who meet each other on May 2.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Khan said:

I'd love to go in the ring and fight Kell Brook because it could be his last fight against me, because the thing is I would give him so much of a beating that it could end up being his last fight.

And maybe that's why he wants it, because he knows that one fight against me will financially secure him for the rest of his life.

But it's all about timing. If I've got a different route and I want to face the likes of the Mayweathers or Pacquiaos out there, then Kell Brook will have to wait.
