South Korea winger Kim Bo-Kyung claims he has attracted interest from Cardiff and Celtic this summer.
The Cerezo Osaka player is thought to have turned heads with two goals and two assists in his country's World Cup qualifiers against Qatar and Lebanon last month.
Reports in the Korean media claim Kim's agency, Ivansports, has confirmed the winger is in talks with Cardiff over a potential move.
The 22-year-old is keen on a European switch and says he is open to joining the Bluebirds or Scottish Premier League champions Celtic.
"Celtic and Cardiff City are possible destinations now," he is quoted as saying.
"I don't mind that Cardiff are in the Championship. I have no experience in Europe so I can learn step-by-step.
"I'd like to play in England or Germany. My agent and officials of Cerezo Osaka are working on my transfer."
It has been reported Kim's agency recently turned down a €6 million (£4.7m) offer from Monaco for the winger.
