The father of Borussia Dortmund forward Mohamed Zidan claims his son has been targeted by a number of top European sides.
The Egypt international impressed again at this year's African Cup of Nations as his country won the competition for the third consecutive time last month.
The 28-year-old's form has put him in the spotlight once more, with his father Abdullah adamant a deal with a top European club may be struck this summer.
"There are clubs like Arsenal, Barcelona and Manchester United that have asked his agent about Mohamed," said Abdullah Zidan told Egyptian station Dream TV.
"Mohamed has a contract at Dortmund until 2012, but he has a clause allowing him to leave the club at the end of the season for a certain amount of money."
Dortmund are Zidan's fourth German club and the playmaker has grabbed two Bundesliga goals in 16 appearances this season.
Zidan, who has 33 international caps, netted seven times in 29 games in the previous season - his first at Signal Iduna Park.
