Reported transfer target, Raul Albiol, has dropped a massive hint that he is looking for a move to the Premiership this Summer.

He told skysports.com: “If I leave Valencia I would only go to a big club.”

“The Premier League could be perfect because I have always been a fan of the football they play.”

“But I am happy in Valencia at the moment.”

The 23 year old still has two years remaining on his deal at the Mestalla, but with the club £400m in debt his release clause fee of £18.5m would not necessarily need to be matched to get his signature.

Valencia’s sporting director Fernando Gomez confirmed that clubs from England were scouting Albiol, but are yet to make their interest official with a firm bid for the defender’s services.

He said: “The situation has not changed and we are obliged to sell players. We know of the English interest but we have not received a formal offer for Raul.”
