Kone told reporters: "You always have ambitions as a footballer, and I don't intend to play in the English second division.
"Wigan have gone down, which is a real shame. It's up to them to set out their stance about my situation. I aim to play for one of the best clubs in England, and I hope I will get the chance.
"I've had plenty of approaches. I can't reveal the names of the clubs. I'm under contract with Wigan for two more years. But if there is an offer that is good for both me and Wigan I will seek to leave."
Kone scored 13 goals in 38 appearances in all competitions for Wigan last season.
