Chelsea, Spurs in talks for Valencia star Villa

Chelsea and Tottenham are ready to battle for unsettled Valencia striker David Villa.

The News of the World says Chelsea could lose Didier Drogba, while Spurs face a fight to hang on to Dimitar Berbatov.

And Spanish sensation Villa, 26, has given both clubs encouragement by announcing his future lies in the Premier League.

He revealed: "I am happy at the interest within the Premier League and this is my dream if I leave Spain."

Valencia sporting director Miquel Angel Ruiz said: "If we receive a formal offer, we'll study it."

Villa will cost £25million and last week sent agent Jose Luis Tamargo to London to sound out interest.
