Pires wants Bolton's Anelka at Villarreal

Villarreal midfielder Robert Pires is eager to see Bolton striker Nicolas Anelka join him in Spain.

The £8million-rated Bolton hitman enjoyed one of the best spells of his career alongside Pires at Arsenal before moving to Real Madrid.

And with the moody French ace, 28, eyeing a move from the Reebok, Pires wants him to make a return to La Liga.

Pires said: "For me Nico is the best attacking French player in Europe. It would be a sensational buy for us."
