South Africa's Teko Modise has issued a 'come and get me' call to English Premier League clubs.
The 26-year-old Orlando Pirates creative midfielder, who was man of the match in South Africa's opening Confederations Cup game, is being linked to Wigan, Manchester City and Aston Villa.
While he believes it is time to move on, he has concerns about his reported £4million price tag.
He told the Daily Mirror: "I'm a fan of English football and I've got a friend who is playing there in Steven Pienaar at Everton.
"We talk a lot about it and if the opportunity comes for me it would be very important.
"For two years now Steven has been telling me to move on from South Africa.
"But it's kind of difficult because I'm playing for a big team and the price tag as well - that was an issue."
He added: "We'll see what happens but I think it's time to move on.
"It gives you that extra edge to work extra hard when you know there are people who are enquiring about you.
"I'm confident I have the quality to play in England.
"If I can get a move, I'll only become a better player."
