Amr Zaki's agent claims four Premier League clubs have made bids for the Egypt international striker.
Zaki made a strong start to his season-long loan at Wigan with an impressive haul of six goals from his first eight games, but ended the campaign with just three in 21 appearances.
Not only did Zaki's form dramatically tail off, but in April the 26-year-old angered manager Steve Bruce after going AWOL following his country's game against Zambia.
However, that behaviour has apparently not deterred potential suitors with his personal manager Mohamed Saied revealing four other clubs are keen to secure his signature from El Zamalek.
"Four Premier League clubs have made solid bids to land Zaki, they have all offered him higher wages than that he's paid at Wigan," Saied told FilGoal.com.
"Zaki called on Wigan's officials to increase his wage, but they turned him down by saying there is a maximum limit for players' salaries, hence he decided to depart."
