Nikola Zigic admits he is a firm admirer of English football and the Premiership.
Racing Santander striker Nikola Zigic has intimated that were he to quit Spain then England would be his preferred destination, amidst growing talk of interest from the Premiership.
The giant front man, 6ft 8ins, reportedly attracted scouts from Bolton, Tottenham and Arsenal for Racing's recent 1-0 win over Osasuna.
It is believed that Bolton hold the strongest interest in the 26-year-old, who has scored seven goals in La Liga this season, in a run of form that has seen him attract the attention of Juventus.
Zigic, though, would prefer to move to the Premiership over Serie A, firmly of the opinion that his natural game and physical prowess would suit the hurly burly of English football.
"I am aware that some English teams have a continuing interest in me," Zigic told the Spanish media.
"However, I have a contract with Racing. It is clear that the Premiership is a special paradise for a striker of my characteristics.
"It is normal to think about my future and my career."
