The 19 year-old, who has also been linked with Real Madrid, told AS: "I know that Valencia are interested in me, this is an honor. There I'll find my compatriot Renan, with whom I shared the experience of the Olympic Games.
"Then there's David Villa, one of the best strikers around. I would be happy to go and play in the Liga, which is perhaps the most beautiful championship in the world."
Marcos Malaquias, Keirrison's agent, is due in Valencia next week for talks.
