Tottenham defender Gilberto has revealed how compatriots Kaka and Ronaldinho are long-term admirers of the Premier League.
When the Brazilian trio meet up on international duty the topic of conversation often turns to the English top-flight.
And Gilberto is convinced that the star duo would be interested in showcasing their skills in the Premier League.
Chelsea manager Avram Grant has previously expressed an interest in Milan star Kaka and Barcelona ace Ronaldinho, who is almost certain to leave Camp Nou this summer.
Gilberto told The Sun: "When we are with the Brazilian team, Kaka, Ronaldinho and I chat about the Premier League, especially with (Arsenal midfielder) Gilberto Silva who has been here so long.
"There is no reason why players like Ronaldinho and Kaka couldn't play in this country. With more Brazilian players here, there is more of an opening for our players.
"Before people used to think Brazilians wouldn't adapt so well to the style of play or the climate.
"Now some Brazilians are here doing well, adapting well and this will open the door for more.
"Brazilian players all believe the Premier League is the most difficult league. The top players in the world play here."
