Borussia Dortmund's Shinji Kagawa would suit any division, according to his agent.

The Japanese international has been linked with moves to both Chelsea and Manchester United as he continues to stall over a new contract.

While his agent, Thomas Kroth, has refused to discuss Kagawa's potential destination, he has talked up his ability to adapt to any league in the world.

"I can give no status updates and cannot make any speculation," Kroth said. "I'll have to stick to my principles here.

"[But I'll say] only one thing: Shinji is an outstanding player who would fit in any league."

Both Chelsea and United would potentially wreak marketing benefits as well as footballing ones from bringing Kagawa to the Premier League, with either club's Asian audience likely to swell.

Kagawa's brilliant goalscoring form this season is likely to have caught the eye of both the Blues and Red Devils, with the attacking midfielder scoring 13 goals for the Bundesliga league leaders so far this season.

The 23-year-old will bring with him Champions League experience, a valuable asset for both Chelsea and United, while he also played a role in Dortmund winning the Bundesliga title last season.
