Zlatan Ibrahimovic admits it may be too late for him to make a move to the Premier League amidst rumours the striker would fancy a move to Arsenal when his contract runs out at PSG next summer.

The Sweden international has played for top clubs in Spain, Italy, France and Holland, with questions frequently raised of whether one of the world's best strikers will ever test himself in what is regarded the world's toughest league.

But having celebrated his 34th birthday last month, Ibrahimovic believes he has waited too long to make what would be a hotly anticipated move to England.

He told L’Equipe: "I think it is too late to come to England. I am very happy in PSG, I have my last six months and let us see what happens afterwards.

"As long as I'm playing at the highest level, I'm trying to make the most of it, to enjoy it as much as possible and to do what I know how to do."

The striker has recently been linked with a move to Arsenal, whom he has sounded out as his desired destination should he ever make the switch to England.

The veteran forward clearly still has the appetite for top-level club football and would prove the answer to Arsenal's need for a world-class striker - but where else could his future lie should a move to the Emirates fail to materialise?


Reports earlier this month revealed that former club AC Milan made a concerted attempt to bring him back to the San Siro in the summer and could step up their efforts next year.

He has not ruled out a move to America either, linked heavily with MLS sides Orlando city and Miami, where he could be reunited with David Beckham.

If his agent Mino Riola is to be believed, then as many as 30 clubs will vie for his signature come the end of his contract, with many of Europe's top clubs likely to be interested.


Of course, there is always a chance he could stay in France. The striker has stated on several occasions how happy he is at the Parisians and given his goalscoring record for the club, the feeling is surely mutual.

He has already become PSG’s all-time top scorer, overtaking Pauleta’s record of 109 goals, securing his place in the history books.

And with nine goals and four assists in just eight Ligue 1 matches this season, Laurent Blanc won't fancy the thought of parting ways with his star just yet.
