Nikola Zigic's agent has claimed that Manchester City and Tottenham are amongst a number of English clubs looking to land the Serbian.
Milan Calasan has already confirmed that Zigic has no intention of playing in the Championship with Birmingham.
And Birmingham are keen to get Zigic's hefty wage packet off their balance sheet, and a move back to Spain was expected.
But whilst there is interest in La Liga, where Zigic has previously starred for Valencia and Racing Santander, Calasan says a host of Premier League clubs want him.
He says Everton, Wigan and Sunderland have all enquired but they were put off by the asking price.
"A few English teams are showing interest in Zigic, but the obstacle now is his high wage at Birmingham," Calasan told Serbian daily Blic.
"There has been interest from Everton, Wigan and Sunderland, but they cannot meet the quoted price.
"Zigic certainly won't be playing in the Championship. There are clubs in England which are willing to meet the demands for him, and it is possible he will be continuing his career in the Premier League."
City and Spurs
Calasan then made his even more remarkable claims that Roberto Mancini and Harry Redknapp would both be happy to sign the striker.
"Roberto Mancini admires Zigic and would love to see him at Manchester City. If Adebayor departs this summer, the transfer could happen.
"As for Redknapp, he is also heaping praise on Zigic, but he already has Crouch among his ranks."
Calasan admitted that Zigic does have interest from Germany but played down links with Nurnberg or Hannover.
"Much bigger clubs than those mentioned are in play, but it is not the right moment to reveal any names right now," he said.
"His career may well continue in a Bundesliga side."
