Brazilian playmaker Kaka has revealed that the duo of Mesut Ozil and Oscar have asked him to join Premier League giants Arsenal and Chelsea.
As reported by the Daily Mail, the 32-year-old, who currently stars at MLS outfit Orlando City, played alongside Ozil at Real Madrid and has featured with Oscar for his national team.
And it appears that the Premier League stars have discussed the possibility of him moving to England's elite division.

Kaka told the Mail: "They joke with me saying, 'Come and play for Chelsea or Arsenal' but I am so happy here in Orlando."
It appears, then, that Ozil and Oscar will have to make-do without Kaka at their clubs as the ageing Brazilian goes about enjoying success in the latter stages of his career.

After hitting his peak in Milan, Kaka failed to live up to the hype when he moved to Bernabeu in 2009, but still managed to win a league and cup double with the club. Now, though, he will be determined to make it big in the US, whilst he will no doubt be hoping to continue his role with the Brazilian national team.
As well as commenting on the Premier League duo, Kaka has also hailed his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, insisting that the Portuguese superstar deserved to win his Ballon d'Or, claiming that he's a special player.
Kaka continued by saying: "It was great having him as a team-mate. I learnt a lot of things from him, every day I stuck with him and saw how he trained, how he played. It helped me a lot.
"We had a great relationship off the pitch in Spain. We still have a very good one. I'm so happy that he could win the Ballon d'Or at Real Madrid. He really deserved that. He is a special player."
Too late for Kaka
In truth, though, it now appears to be too late for Kaka to stamp his mark in the Premier League. There's no doubt about it, in his prime he was one of the standout players in world football, however he's failed to produce the goods at the highest level over the last couple of years.
A few years back, he'd have made an exceptional signing for either club, but that ship has now sailed, and it's unlikely we will ever see him star on English soil on a permanent basis.
