Arsenal have been linked with a move for the striker who has scored 14 goals made nine assists
The Brazilian has been in exceptional form this season, scoring an impressive 14 goals and adding a further nine assists in all competitions.
And speaking in an interview with Belgian newspaper Het Belang van Limburg, the 22-year-old left the door wide open for the Gunners to swoop for him this summer.
He said: ‘I have read all those names. It is of course completely different going to China than to another European country.
‘I don’t know what I want, I don’t want to exclude anything.
‘I do know that I once said that I want to go to England and that is still the case.
‘I have always closely followed the Premier League. But I am certainly also open to other leagues.’
Wesley scored twice for the Belgian club against Monaco in the Champions League this term
Wesley moved to Belgium from Slovakian club AS Trencin in January 2016 for just £900,000, and would net a huge profit if he is flogged to the Premier League, Serie A or La Liga.
He featured prominently for Bruges in this season’s Champions League, scoring twice against Monaco as the Belgian club pipped Monaco to third in their group behind Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid.
The Belgian club finished the regular season in second and are now fighting it out for the title in the championship playoffs.
