Liverpool, Chelsea and Spurs to move for £16 million Spaniard

Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea are all to make moves for Valencia midfielder David Silva after the Spanish club admitted they would listen to offers. It is thought that Valencia are now looking to sell Silva along with team-mates David Villa and Joaquin in order to balance the books at the Mestalla. (Premiership Latest)

Silva, 22, had a magnificent European Championships for Spain last month, which saw his country lift the trophy. It is thought now that Rafa Benitez, Juande Ramos and Luis Fillipe Scolari will all bid £16 million to try and tempt Valencia to sell one of their prized assets.

There is no doubt Silva is a quality winger who would no doubt improve any of the three sides in question. The asking price of £16 million is a fair assessment of the player's ability. I would be extremely surprised if any other side from Europe's elite group of clubs don't come in for Silva.
