FC Porto defender Nicolas Otamendi has opened the door to a move to the Premier League, reports Portuguese newspaper Record (via TalkSport.com).
The Argentina international, 25, has been linked with Manchester City and Chelsea, while Monaco also have a reported interest, according to the article.
But Otamendi is quoted as saying in the article that a January transfer move cannot harm his chances of playing in the 2014 World Cup finals:
My mind is at Porto and continuing to play here. I want to do my job to the best of my ability. Porto draws attention around the world and these rumours still exist.
But I'm glad they speak well of me, that means I do things well. If an opportunity presents itself, I'll think. I will continue to help Porto.
I do not think changing clubs in January would harm me in the context of the World Cup. I always want to do my best, wherever I play.
