Tottenham full-back Gilberto has revealed that Brazil internationals such as Kaka and Ronaldinho have talked about playing in the Premier League.
Three of the four semi-finalists in the UEFA Champions League were English clubs and Manchester United and Chelsea will contest the final in Moscow.
And Gilberto has confirmed that the Premier League has been a hot topic of discussion by members of Dunga's squad when they have met up.
"When we are together with the Brazil national team, we talk about the Premier League, especially with Gilberto Silva who knows the league the best," he said.
"Juan, even Ronaldinho and Kaka, we have had chats about the Premier League."
Gilberto joined Spurs from Hertha Berlin in January and he expects more of his countrymen to arrive in England over the coming months and years.
"The Premier League has been improving for the last few years and with more Brazilian players coming here there is more openings for them to come.
"Before people used to think Brazilians wouldn't be too good in this style of playing, they wouldn't adapt or it would be difficult for them in the climate.
"Now some of them have come here and have been doing well, adapting well so this will open it more for other players.
"I'm sure players like Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and Kaka - there is no reason for them not to come to play here.
"We talk about the English league being the most difficult because most of the best players are here and everyone is fighting for everything.
"In Spain it's Real Madrid and Barcelona, in Italy it's AC Milan, Inter Milan and maybe Juventus.
"In England there are four or five - Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, Liverpool, even Tottenham if you like."
