Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic confirmed over the Easter weekeend that Premier League clubs have indicated an interest in signing him from French champions Paris Saint-Germain.

The 34-year-old has been linked with a move to the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal and is out of contract with PSG at the end of this season.

"There is an interest, yes. I can confirm that and we will see where it leads," Ibrahimovic told reporters in Stockholm over the weekend where he is preparing for Sweden's friendly international against the Czech Republic on Tuesday night.

"I think the Premier League is the most high-profile league in the world. It is making most of the headlines.

"But it would have to be like a marriage -- both sides have to want it as much."

Ibrahimovic has won league titles in four different European countries.

He arrived in Paris in July 2012 from AC Milan but after helping PSG to a fourth successive league title earlier this month he appeared adamant that he would not be in the French capital next season.

"For the moment I am not at PSG next year," he said before cheekily adding: "If they replace the Eiffel Tower with a statue of me, I will stay at PSG. I can promise that!"

Ibrahimovic sat out Sweden's last friendly against Turkey, because his manager Erik Hamrén wanted him to rest ahead of Euro 2016 in Paris. The Scandinavian side were defeated 2-1.

Hamrén said ahead of the loss that it would be "good for the team" if Sweden's superstar striker joined the squad playing against the Czech Republic.

The match kicks off at 8.30pm at the Friends Arena in Solna, north of Stockholm.
