Real Mallorca defender Ivan Ramis has set his sights on a move to the Premier League.

The 27-year-old centre-back, who came up through the youth ranks at local club Mallorca, has been linked with Aston Villa and Sunderland in the media and Ramis admits he is keen on a switch to England.

He was quoted as saying by AS: "This could be the ideal moment to make a change and the Premier League is a destination that appeals because I like the football there.

"I cannot say that things are bad here because I'm very happy, but it's possibly a step that I have to take to continue growing as a player.

"I want to have more challenges, more dreams, and to play in the English league would be an important step for me. I'd prefer things to be sorted out as soon as possible with regards to whether I'm staying or going."

Mallorca vice-president Lorenzo Serra Ferrer, speaking at Thursday's presentation of new signing Ruben Mino, confirmed there had been contact from a Premier League club but that no deal had yet been struck.

"I've received an offer from the representative of a Premier League club but we are quite far apart," he said.

"We're happy that Ramis has the idea and dream of progressing in his career. We've invested a lot in him and we know that he's a local lad, who developed here and who is very important.

"We're not thinking that Ivan has to go. The truth is that we wouldn't like him to go."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
