Barcelona midfielder Jonathan dos Santos has revealed he would like to join a Premier League club, if he leaves Catalonia.
The 22-year-old is way down the pecking order at Camp Nou, and has made just four appearances in all competitions this season. The Mexico international has been linked with a move to a host of European clubs, including Everton and West Ham United, and the youngster has now admitted that he would be open to a switch to the English top flight.
"If I leave Barcelona, my preferred destination is the Premier League. I am not content with just a few minutes of game time, but this Barcelona squad is incredible and I am learning a lot with this experience. Really, I am not sorry to have stayed at the club because we are the best in the world," dos Santos said.
Jonathan is the younger brother of former Tottenham Hotspur winger Giovani dos Santos, another Barcelona product.
Mucha Looking at Options
Meanwhile, Everton goalkeeper Jan Mucha is considering leaving Goodison Park at the end of the season, claims his agent Jozef Tokos.
The Slovakian's current contract expires at the end of the season, just like manager David Moyes, and the stopper has no intention of signing a new deal until the campaign ends.
"I had a very useful meeting with Mr Moyes last week but at the moment I cannot reveal anything about what we discussed. It is publicly known that the current manager David Moyes announced that he would not yet sign an extension and that the club would be negotiating it only after the season," Tokos said.
"There are a number of options at the moment. He may reach an agreement with a new club during the season, which is legitimate according to FIFA. At the moment I cannot say more than that there are clubs interested in him. Naturally, he can make an agreement after the season as well," he added.
Mucha, who joined Everton from Legia Warszawa in 2010, made his Premier League debut against Reading earlier this month, as club No.1 Tim Howard missed out with an injury.
