Jose Callejon has admitted he would be interested in a move to England amid reports that Wigan are close to agreeing a deal with Espanyol.
Roberto Martinez is understood to have been tracking the progress of the Spanish forward who has caught the eye with a series of impressive performances for Espanyol.
Callejon stated earlier this month that he was happy at Espanyol but could not say with any certainty what might happen in the future.
Speculation suggests that Wigan has since stepped up their pursuit and are in negotiations with the 23-year-old's agent.
Espanyol are thought to be ready to do business as they look to ease their money worries and might let Callejon go for a fee in the region of £4.5million.
Callejon is aware of the transfer talk and concedes that playing in England would be a magnificent opportunity.
"For me this is good praise because I have been working hard this season," he said in the Spanish press.
"If the operation is positive for all parties then I am open to the challenge of the Premier League."
