Brazilian forward Robinho is keen on a return to the Premier League amidst reports his representatives have been in contact with Swansea and Leicester City, according to the Daily Mail.
The 32-year-old, boasting the likes of Santos, Real Madrid, Manchester City and AC Milan on his glittering CV, has his sights set on England's top flight following the expiration of his contract with Chinese Super League outfit, Guangzhou Evergrande.
Should any club be tempted to take a chance on Robinho, the fact he's a free agent means he will be available to sign even despite the January transfer window being closed.

The South American scored a respectable 14 goals in 31 league appearances during his debut season at the Etihad in 2008.
However, he failed to continue such form the following campaign and departed on loan to Santos without a single strike to his name in ten Premier League games.
Robinho has managed just 11 goals in 31 outings in all competitions for Santos and Guangzhou Evergrande since the beginning of 2015, suggesting he might struggle should he return to one of the most competitive leagues in world football.
Is Robinho worth the risk?
At 32-years-old, the Brazil international is nearing the end of his career and has naturally seen a decline in his physical capabilities over the last two or three years.
Robinho is still an ingenious dribbler of the ball and a reliable finisher in the box, but there is little doubt his flamboyant style would struggle to make an impact in the Premier League at his age.
Although the Brazilian still has all the flicks and tricks to create something out of nothing, Premier League sides would be taking a huge risk by signing up the veteran striker.
