Chelsea, Arsenal target Barella: English football the most beautiful

Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella admits he'd like to play in England.

Chelsea No2 Gianfranco Zola admits they tried to sign Barella in January. He has also been linked with Arsenal and Manchester United.

And the youngster told Radiolina: "There are three games left, and I want to give my all in them.

“After that, I'll sit down with the President and my agent to assess what's best for Cagliari and I going forward.

“I know nothing about an agreement with Inter. Right now, English football is the most beautiful [as] both European Finals will be played by four English teams."

He added: “I resemble [Radja] Nainggolan a bit in terms of playing style, although we have different characteristics.

“I also liked [Steven] Gerrard very much."
