The Dutch international is keen to play in one of Europe's elite leagues, with his preferred destination the Premier League.
Southampton failed in a bid sign Lens last summer, with PSV demanding £10million-plus, but now Newcastle and Wigan are lining up bids and could make a move in January.
The 24-year-old plans to leave at the end of the season but could be tempted to leave in January should Newcastle and Wigan follow up their interest.
He told Elf Voetbal Magazine: "At the end of this season, I will be 25 and then a transfer must come. I would like to leave PSV with the title but if that does not happen it is still no reason to stay.
"At this point in my career I need to go for my career and personal development. I don't have a real preference for a particular league but in terms of playing style England and Germany would suit me."
