Nacional Funchal striker Nene has admitted he is flattered by the reported interest in him from a number of leading clubs across Europe.
Reports in Portugal have linked the 25-year-old with moves to Hamburg, Aston Villa and more recently Lyon, who could sign the player should Karim Benzema decide to leave the club in the summer.
The Brazilian hotshot is in his first season with Nacional Funchal but has taken the Portuguese league by storm in soaring to the top of the scoring charts with a total of 15 goals.
But the former Santos ace has not been a success at all his clubs, with failed spells at Mallorca and Celta Vigo in Spain and Hertha Berlin in Germany.
Despite his short stay in Portugal's top flight, Nene admits he would be interested in a move.
"I am flattered by all the speculation," he told skysports.com
"I am ready to move abroad, if my club accept a bid I will be okay to move."
