Valencia ace Villa drops Liverpool hint

Valencia striker David Villa has hinted at hopes of joining Liverpool. Villa has good friends playing at Anfield and is ready to move to England.

Villa said: "In the summer I had my own reasons for staying in Spain. Basically, my wife had to give birth first.

"But this time it will be different and I'll analyse it again. I like the Premier League a lot. There are a lot of very important teams in England, who play very good football.

"It's the league I follow the most, along with La Liga - and I've got a lot of friends playing there."

One of those pals is Liverpool forward Fernando Torres, who only last week urged under-fire Kop chief Rafa Benitez to make Villa his top transfer target in June, says the Daily Star.

Villa's scoring return in La Liga over the last decade is second to none. The 5ft 9in forward has never hit less than 15 goals in a campaign.
