Former England and Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has appealed for more Premier League clubs to be on the hunt for Zlatan Ibrahimovic when his contact expires at the end of this season.

​Ibrahimovic was one of PSG's many star performers in their 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night. He played the full 90 minutes, scoring the winning goal in the 67th minute in what was a relatively comfortable performance for PSG.


The powerful Swedish forward has been linked with a sensational move to ​West Ham, as well as Man Utd, Chelsea and Arsenal who have all kept tabs on Ibra for years. The striker has also teased the media over a possible move to England, ultimately keeping his options open.

“I have another three months here and then what will happen?" He said after being asked about the possibility of moving to England.

"Big things will happen. Is the Premier League something I fancy? Let’s just say I’m in shape.”

After proving yet again that he has what it takes on the big stage, Rio Ferdinand reckons more English clubs should be looking to have a punt on Ibrahimovic in the summer.

Speaking to BT Sport after PSG's 2-1 win over Chelsea, Ferdinand said:

“This game was decided by clinical play and Ibrahimovic was at the centre of that. He basically ended the tie,

“He showed today that even at 34, English clubs should be looking at him as a free transfer. 

“He can be the catalyst to winning things because that’s what he does. 

“Arsenal [should sign him]. He would give them that winning mentality.”

Ibrahimovic has won trophies in the Dutch, Italian, Spanish and French leagues and if he does complete a move to England in the summer, the likelihood is that Ibra would want to play for a title-challenging side.
