CSKA Moscow star Keisuke Honda is a target for clubs in Spain and England, according to the player's agent.
The 24 year-old, who is currently on international duty with Japan at the Asian Cup, has been attracting interest from Europe's elite after his standout performances at last year's World Cup.
A big money move has been mooted for some time now and his agent, Kees Pleogsma, has confirmed interest in his client with Atletico Madrid leading the race.
"A number of clubs have expressed their interest," Pleogsma told the Qatari media.
"At this stage, we are waiting for a serious offer. I'm really hoping that something can happen, but we'll have to wait and see."
Despite having no shortage of admirers across the continent, Honda is reportedly favouring a move to the Primera Liga, which could be a blow to his English suitors.
Pleogsma said: "The most likely scenario for him at the moment is to remain at CSKA. If they are willing to let him go, Atletico Madrid could be an option.
"He wants to stamp his game on the Spanish style of play.
Arsenal, Aston Villa and Liverpool are reportedly tracking Honda's situation.
