Villarreal keeper Diego Lopez claims a move to the Premier League is 'very attractive' after he was again linked with Manchester United.
Reports in Spain have repeatedly suggested that Lopez is a target for the Premier League champions as Sir Alex Ferguson weighs up his long-term goalkeeping options.
Edwin van der Sar turns 39 on Thursday and England international Ben Foster is yet to convince he can be the Dutchman's permanent successor.
Lopez is among a string of keepers mooted as possible replacements for Van der Sar and he has impressed since joining Villarreal from Real Madrid in 2007.
He won his first cap for Spain in August and has reportedly been watched twice by scouts from United recently as Villarreal seek to recover from a poor start to the season.
The 27-year-old is rated in the £15million category and he is aware of the speculation linking him with a switch to England.
"I'm aware of rumours and the Premier League is very attractive," Lopez is quoted by The Sun.
