Bayern Munich striker Ivica Olic is yet to make a decision over his future but is desperate to play more regularly, according to his agent.
The Croatia international, who is out of contract with the Bundesliga club at the end of the season, has been heavily linked with a move away from the Allianz-Arena in January.
Olic has made it clear he is not satisfied making the majority of his appearances from the bench but it seems unlikely he will reclaim a first-team spot due to the storming form of Mario Gomez.
His agent, Gordon Stipic, says there is a chance he will make a move overseas, claiming several Italian clubs are interested.
Bundesliga rivals Wolfsburg are also thought to be chasing his signature, according to German newspaper Wolfsburger Allgemeine Zeitung.
But Stipic has not ruled out Olic penning a new deal and staying at Bayern.
He said: "Ivica has told me he is keen to play more regularly.
"This does not automatically mean he will definitely be on the move away from Bayern. I cannot even rule out him signing new terms with Bayern Munich.
"His deal expires at the end of this season. I have spoken to some clubs from Italy. I cannot reveal their names.
"There is a chance he will continue in the Bundesliga but there is also a chance of him moving to a foreign league."
