Matthews beat Crolla to win the British title, before suffering losses to Gavin Rees and Terry Flannigan. He then won his final two fights in 2012 and now wants to move back on to the world stage.
"The lads I really want to fight next year are Anthony Crolla, Emiliano Marsili, Terry Flannigan and Ricky Burns," Matthews told the Liverpool Echo.
"I owe Crolla a rematch, I want to see what I will be like against Marsili with Danny Vaughan in my corner and I would love to test myself against Burns.
"The Flannigan fight is to put the record straight for Prizefighter and see what he's like over ten rounds."
Matthews currently has a record of 32 wins, eight losses and one draw.
