The agent of Valencia midfielder Mehmet Topal has told The International Business Times that Manchester City and Chelsea are both interested in signing the Turkish international.

Batur Altiparmak informed the IBTimes that Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini and Chelsea counterpart Andre Villas-Boas, have been monitoring Topal for "two-months".

The 25-year-old's agent also admitted his client would be extremely interested in furthering his career by playing in the Premier League, but he indicated neither Manchester City nor Chelsea had at this stage made a concrete offer to him or Topal's employers Valencia.

While eager to reiterate the defensive midfielder's happiness at the Estadio Mestalla, Altiparmak suggested Topal would relish playing for either Manchester City or Chelsea, but only if Valencia were willing to sell him. He suggested he would sit down with the midfielder, who has been capped 22 times by Turkey, at the end of the season in order to discuss his future.

"They (Chelsea and Manchester City) have been watching him for two months now but I must stress there is nothing concrete from either club." Topal's agent Batur Altiparmak exclusively told The International Business Times.

"We will reassess his future at the end of the season.

"He is happy in Valencia and has two and half years left on his contract.

"Obviously if the opportunity arose for him to take the next step in his career he would like to take it, but only if Valencia are willing.

"The Premier League is one of the best in the world but so is the Spanish Primera División." Altiparmak concluded.

Since moving to Valencia in September 2010, the 25-year-old has emerged as an increasingly influential player for Unai Emery's side. Although he is gradually establishing himself as one of La Liga's most consistent performers, he has relatively nominal release clause worth a reported €10 million (£8.5m), which would inevitably prove an attractive proposition to Roberto Mancini and Andre Villas-Boas, despite the obvious riches at their disposal.

On Tuesday, Topal confirmed he was extremely excited by rumours purporting to Manchester City and Chelsea's interest in him, and he admitted it would be a "dream" to play for either Mancini or Villas-Boas in the Premier League.

"I know that there are teams following me," Mehmet told the Dogan News Agency. "This makes me incredibly happy. The Premier League is my dream.

"However, Spain also makes me very happy and I have dreams I want to accomplish here. At the end of the season, I'll come to a decision."

Valencia can currently boast a host of talented players reportedly attracting covetous glances from the Premier League's elite clubs.

In recent months Spanish internationals Roberto Soldado and Jordi Alba, have been linked with Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United respectively, while France international Adil Rami has reportedly been tracked by Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea.

Despite losing David Villa, David Silva and Juan Mata in the space of 18-months in order to alleviate their well-documented financial problems, Los Che have defied the gloomy forecasts to remain a potent force in La Liga. They are currently in third position behind the vaunted duo of Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Valencia host Genk in this evening's Champions League game at the Mestalla knowing a victory will keep their hopes alive of qualifying for the next stage of the competition. Unai Emery's side are currently on five points in Group E, three behind Chelsea and trailing Bayer Leverkusen by a single point.
