Borja Valero: Has caught the eye during his time with Fiorentina

The former West Brom schemer has caught the eye since swapping life at Villarreal for that in Serie A in August 2012.

His performances have not gone unnoticed, with Inter Milan and Real Madrid among those said to be closely monitoring his progress.

Valero is a product of Real's famed academy system and admits there is one club in Spain that could tempt him back to his homeland, but for now, the 28-year-old is doing his best to ignore the rumours and has refused to rule out the possibility of agreeing an extended stay in Florence.

He told Il Corriere dello Sport: "What do I feel about interest from big clubs. I don't know, maybe they have been wrong about me in the past.

"Fiorentina have turned down €20m for me? Really? I wouldn't pay that for me.

"A return to Real Madrid? I'm satisfied here. I'm fine at Fiorentina.

"There are only two teams that could tempt me if an offer was made, one is Spanish and the other is European. But dreams are not to be revealed and, anyway, they aren't thinking about me.

"I still have a three-year contract with Fiorentina. Could I extend that deal? Why not."

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.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

T

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.
