Arsenal enter race to sign £20 million Liverpool target

Arsenal have today joined Liverpool in the race to sign Valencia winger David Silva after weeks of speculation about the Spaniards future. Silva has been told he can leave the Mestalla this summer due to financially difficulty at Valencia with Liverpool and Arsenal said to be very keen on bringing him to the Premier League.

The 22-year old is widely regarded as one of Europe's top class wingers and is likely to cost either side as much as £20 million. He is currently on duty at the European Championships where Spain meet Russia in the semi-finals tomorrow. He has made just under 100 appearances for Valencia during his four years at the club, scoring over a dozen goals in the process.

I personally would love to see a player like Silva come to the Premier League. He is a very talented young player who in my view can and will develop into a real star. I feel both Liverpool and Arsenal fans would be thrilled to see Silva at their club next season but who he will choose, I do not know.
