David Villa, who has been linked with a move to England, has admitted he is tempted by the prospect of playing in the Premiership.
Much of the speculation involving Villa in recent months has centred on Chelsea, and the Valencia striker admits they are one of the clubs he admires.
“I am attracted to the strength of Chelsea and the pace and mobility of Arsenal, especially at home,” Villa told The Times.
“Everybody loves Manchester United – they have played some of the best football in Europe for a long while, maintaining a good defensive discipline.
“Liverpool are like Valencia – a team full of heart, good at the back with a midfield of quality and built so it is very difficult to beat them.”
Villa also believes the Premiership is home to some of the world’s best players,.
“Because of the way football is played now, there are not many players like Cristiano Ronaldo in the world – brilliant in one-on-ones,” he continued.
“Lampard has got lots of quality in his passing and covers lots of ground.
“He and Gerrard are two of the best midfielders in the world because they mix quality and physical presence.”
