Hannover forward Didier Ya Konan has fuelled transfer speculation by admitting that he hopes to turn out in the Premier League at some stage.
The Ivory Coast international has long been linked with a move to England, but is yet to complete a switch.
January could see such a move made, with Sunderland, Southampton and Reading believed to be closely monitoring his situation in Germany.
Konan admits that he would welcome the opportunity to take on a new challenge and has refused to rule out the prospect of taking the plunge in 2013.
He is, however, aware that any deal will depend on Hannover and their willingness to discuss a sale.
"I am happy with my form so far," Konan said after netting in a 3-0 victory for Ivory Coast over Austria on Wednesday.
"I have always been linked with the Premier League and hopefully one day a move will happen.
"I am enjoying it at Hannover at the moment, but you never know what will happen in football."
