Corriere dello Sport in Italy are reporting that Japan ace Takayuki Morimoto is hoping to secure a move to the Premier League in January, with Manchester United and Everton believed to be the interested clubs.

The Catania player has fallen out of favour at Stadio Angelo Massimino, and has demanded a transfer in order to fulfil his potential.

That potential is very high indeed if his statements from other players are anything to go by.

AC Milan forward Alexandre Pato compared Morimoto to Brazilian legend Ronaldo in an interview last year, and if he turns out to be half as good as the World Cup record goalscorer, the Premier League could welcome a very special player indeed.
