PSV Eindhoven forward Jeremain Lens believes that his physical features make him an ideal fit for the Premier League or Bundesliga.
Lens has impressed with the Eindhoven-based outfit so far this season, continuing the fine form he showed in the Eredivisie during the last campaign.
Lens has even won a regular spot in Louis van Gaal’s Oranje squad and has scored three goals in Holland’s 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign, hitting two against Hungary in September and one against Romania in October.
The 25-year-old is paying a key role for PSV in their title charge, with four goals and eight assists in 15 Eredivisie encounters this season, but there are question marks over how long to Dutch giants can keep hold of him for.
Lens has been strongly mooted to be on Liverpool’s shopping list, while Juventus have also been credited with holding an interest in the Dutchman.
Now though the forward has handed the Reds and any other English or German suitors a boost, by claiming he feels his game would suit the Premier League or Bundesliga ahead of other leagues.
"At the end of the season I will be 25 years old and if the opportunity comes to move then I would want to do it after winning the title with PSV", Lens told Elf Voetbal Magazine.
"I have no preference", he added, on his potential destination.
"But my features are perhaps ideal for the Premier League and Bundesliga."
Lens is under contract at the Philips Stadion until 2015 and PSV will not easily part with the player.
However, a substantial offer may well turn the Dutch club’s head.
