Liverpool temptation for Spanish ace

Spanish star David Villa has hinted he would like to move to Liverpool, if he heads to England this summer. The Valencia striker has lit up Euro 2008 with four goals in their opening two group games. A host of clubs are tracking Villa with Liverpool and Chelsea reported to be heading the queue for the diminutive front-man. Villa, who has linked up so well with current Reds star Fernando Torres for Spain, admits he would be tempted by the prospect of playing with him on a weekly basis. "Liverpool and Chelsea are both big clubs with a lot of attraction," he told the News of the World. Villa also admitted that Liverpool's Spanish coach Rafa Benitez could play a big role in attracting him as he tried to sign him earlier in his career. "Liverpool have a Spanish coach and I also have a lot of friends there," he said. "When Rafa was coach at Valencia and I was at Zaragoza there was contact about me joining Valencia but I couldn't arrive until the year after he left there."
