Zambia international Stoppila Sunzu is waiting to discover if a trio of Premier League clubs follow up an initial interest from the Africa Cup of Nations.
Sunzu impressed in the tournament in Equatorial Guinea and Gabon earlier this year, and scored the winning penalty in the final victory over the Ivory Coast.
The 22-year-old, who can play in defence or midfield, has previously expressed an interest in moving to England and saw work permit issues scupper a move to Reading earlier in his career.
He currently plays in DR Congo for TP Mazembe and claims that he met representatives from Arsenal, Bolton Wanderers and Chelsea in Gabon.
"I met recruiters from Chelsea, Bolton and Arsenal in my hotel room in Gabon," Sunzu is quoted by The People. "If those clubs want me, they have to contact Mazembe.
"I will join the club that offers the most money and gives me the best chance to progress. Whoever signs me won't regret it."
