The Brazilian midfielder, who recently scored the winner against Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League, has admitted that he would relish the chance of playing in the Premier League.

2012 saw the midfielder achieve the double in Ukraine, as well as winning his fifth cap for Brazil, and his desire to play in the Premier League will no doubt alert the top clubs in English football.

"If I had the opportunity to play in the Premier League I think that my qualities would improve even further," he said.

"I believe that the tactical roles of the players are very important, as well as its defensive responsibilities.

"However, these last years we have seen new, more aggressive players with very diverse styles, which make the games even more interesting.

"If I could combine all these roles, I could give considerable value to the Premier League.

"I like England a lot. It is a beautiful country and if I had the opportunity to live here, it would be very good for me and my family."
