Spurs, Liverpool, City and Newcastle chase Barca ace

Barcelona defensive midfielder Edmilson is attracting the attentions of Premier League sides Manchester City, Tottenham, Newcastle and Liverpool after admitting he is looking to leave the Spanish giants in January.

Barca boss Frank Rijkaaard has repeatedly stated his determination to keep the 31-year old Brazilian at the Camp Nou but Edmilson has grown tired of sitting on the bench and wants to leave the club once fully fit.

Edmilson has also stated he will not sign a new deal at the club. Newcastle were said to be very keen on the player before the close of the summer transfer window but for some reason or another that never progressed.

With Rafa Benitez looking for cheaper players due to the whole situation with the American owners. I am very keen to see how Edmilson would do in the Premier League because I think he has a bit of quality.

    If money is a bit short at anfield, then it's pretty unlikely Rafa will be investing any of it in a fourth defensive midfielder (especially one who is 31 years old!)
