Portsmouth, Arsenal target Barnetta eyeing England move

Tranquillo Barnetta admits he's ready to leave Bayer Leverkusen for the Premiership.

The 24-year-old reportedly turned down the chance to join Portsmouth in January while Arsenal were said to have showed interest in March.

Despite his eagerness to test himself in England, Barnetta indicates that any deal will not be done overnight.

"I would like to play in the Premier League, the club is aware of that," he told SI.

"I think a move to a different country would suit me fine. There are a few options, but it is not going to be a decision to be made at the end of today.

"I am looking forward to every proposal, I am very cool on those things."
