Valencia winger Mata can't decide between Liverpool or Arsenal

Juan Mata has admitted he would be interested in a move to the Premier League with both Liverpool and Arsenal his preferred destination. Valencia have financial problems and they may well be forced to sell some of their star players including Mata and although he loves life in Spain he has not ruled out a move to England.

He told Fourfourtwo magazine:"I don't know if I'll be sold, it depends on the economic situation of the club, which right now isn't so good. In the summer we have to raise a lot of money, and there is a possibility that they may have to sell players.

"In Spain they show many Premier League games on TV and it is an inspirational league.

"Maybe I would like to play in the Premier League. At the moment I'm here, I love living in Valencia and playing in the Spanish league, but in England the league is also top class and there are many big teams. Who knows?

"I admire Arsenal and the philosophy that the young players have. Liverpool, with their Spanish players - they also have an incredible squad. And Manchester United and Chelsea are teams that are very big, like Real Madrid and Barcelona, with money and incredible players."
