The striker’s current deal with Ukrainian champions Shakhtar Donetsk is set to expire at the end of the season, meaning he would be available to move on a free transfer.

The Brazilian-born hit man spent three years at the Emirates Stadium and sees the showpiece tournament as his ticket back to the English top flight.

“I still love the Premier League,” he said.

“I keep in touch with Tomas Rosicky and Bacary Sagna at Arsenal and keep an eye on what is generally happening in England.

“I expect to play for Croatia in Brazil and if I have a good World Cup, who knows what that could lead to?”

And when asked on what he thought of the current crop topping the table under Arsene Wenger, the 30-year-old admitted that he has been more than impressed with what he has seen.

“Arsenal have the right mentality and I’m not surprised they have made such a good start to the season and are top of the Premier League,” he added.

“Don’t forget, their great run of form actually started in the second-half of last season when they went on a run, picked up a lot of points and qualified for the Champions League.

“I think United will get stronger as the season goes on – they will go on a run and fight Arsenal for the title.

“I also like Liverpool this season and how they are playing. I think the title-race will come down to those three sides – Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool.”
