Japan ace Keisuke Honda is aiming for a move to the Premier League in January.
The 24-year-old has been linked with some of Europe's top-clubs after he was the star performer for the Blue Samurais in the World Cup.
His classy displays led to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger branding the CSKA Moscow playmaker a "genius", and the Gunners are now favourites to sign the £12 million-rated man.
But Wenger will have to wait until January until he tables a bid, after Honda's agent revealed that he would not be leaving Moscow this summer.
Kees Ploegsma told talkSPORT: "Honda will be staying in Russia until at least January."
"When a big club comes in he will want to leave but at the moment that has not happened.
"There were opportunities to move but he has not had the offer from a top club, which is what we want.
"A lot of managers will be watching him after he played so well at the World Cup - now they can watch him more for CSKA and hopefully they will decide to try and do something in January."
The former Nagoya Grampus midfielder reportedly rejected the chance to join Turkish side Galatasaray in order to secure a dream move to the Premier League.
