Women's World Cup Golden Boot winner Hinata Miyazawa on Monday vowed to further raise her profile as she mulls several offers from overseas following her stellar performances for Japan this summer in New Zealand.
A source familiar with the matter said Liverpool and Frankfurt are among the sides linked with the 23-year-old Mynavi Sendai attacker, who on Monday departed Japan for London where she will meet up with her agent to decide on her next move.
"My aim is to perform well at the international level (with the new club) and become a famous player," Miyazawa said at Tokyo's Haneda Airport. "I hope to raise my level being surrounded by players from many countries."
Tournament debutant Miyazawa bagged five goals at the World Cup co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand, including a brace against Spain as Nadeshiko Japan hammered the eventual champions 4-0 in their last group-stage game. Japan lost to Sweden 2-1 in the quarterfinals.
Miyazawa became the second Japanese top scorer at the Women's World Cup after the 2011 tournament-winning captain Homare Sawa, who also scored five goals in Germany.
