Liverpool and Chelsea will not leave any stones unturned to find results in the Premiership and Europe, and if the current transfer rumors are true, both the clubs are looking forward to making a £34.2 million bid for Barcelona and Spain striker, David Villa, who is still finding it tough to settle at the Nou Camp.
The Spanish media has reported that the striker is looking for a quick exit as he is still unsettled with the life at the Catalan club. Spanish radio station Cadena Ser has also reported that both Chelsea and Liverpool have approached Barcelona to enquire about the availability of the star.
It is believed that Villa, 29, is not pleased with Barca boss Pep Guardiola’s decision to play him on the flanks so that he can accommodate Lionel Messi. The player wants to be placed as a central striker which is similar to the way he used to play in Valencia and also the Spanish national side.
It was previously reported that the Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is looking for fire power upfront, who would act as a back-up for Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll. Now it is to be seen if the Reds manager is willing to pay for the services of the Spaniard, according to a Caughtoffside report.
Villa joined Valencia in 2005 from Real Zaragoza for €12 million. He scored his first league goal for the club against his former club who came on as a late substitute for Ruben Baraja and scored an equalizer, earning Valencia a point as the game ended 2–2. He has scored 108 goals for Valencia in 166 appearances.
Villa later joined Barcelona in 2010 where he made 45 appearances and scored 21 times. He also made his national team debut in 2005 and was a member of the team that won the Euro 2008 and the 2010 World Cup. He is the first Spanish player to reach 50 international goals and is Spain's all-time top scorer.
