The Daily Mail is reporting that Rafa Benitez is lining up a near-£10million bid for Raul Albiol after the Valencia defender expressed his admiration for the Premier League.

The article also claims that Benitez will have a £30m budget this Summer and has Aaron Lennon and Gareth Barry at the top of his hitlist.

Albiol is rated at £18m, but Benitez is said to believe that he can sign him for half that given Valencia’s financial situation.

Albiol has indicated his preference for a move to England this week: “If I do leave Valencia, it would only be for a big club. The Premier League could be perfect.” he said.

Valencia sporting director Fernando Gomez admitted: “We are obliged to sell players, and we know of English interest.”
