Keisuke Honda looks set to leave CSKA Moscow during the transfer window after his agent confirmed discussions with potential suitors were taking place.

The Japan playmaker has attracted interest for some time and now it would appear he is on the verge of a move away from Russia.

Arsenal and Liverpool are both known to have been monitoring the 24-year-old in the past and are likely to be watching developments unfold.

“Several clubs have confirmed their interest,” Honda’s agent Kees Pleogsma told

“My son is going to Qatar tomorrow to have a number of meetings. But, we will have to wait and see who is seriously interested in Keisuke (Honda). You never know.

“Time is going fast in the window. I really hope something can happen, but I don’t know. As I said my son has a number of meetings, but so far nothing is concrete, we must wait and see.” (Give Me Football – Offical PFA Website)

Keisuke Honda is a quality playmaker and it seems a player who is generating a lot of interest at the moment. The Japanese attacking midfielder is currently in Qatar taking part in the Asian Cup and has been very impressive which has led to an increase in speculation that the 24 year old is ready to leave CSKA Moscow for pastures new.

Arsenal and Liverpool are reportedly both in talks to sign the former VVV Venlo player and it will be interesting to see where the £10m rated flair player ends up as it seems highly likely that his Russian adventure will come to an end this month after just just over one year in Moscow.

Honda is known as something of a set piece specialist, a reputation that was furthered when he struck a beauty against Denmark at the World Cup last summer. He is a free scoring midfielder who likes to get forward and knows how to distribute the ball well.

One does wonder though quite where the Osaka born star would fit in at Arsenal, yet most reports speculate that the Gunners are leading the chase for his signature.
