Villa currently plays for Valencia and is a player who's always got 20 goals a season or there or there abouts. They're currently lying 13th in the table without any hope of Champions League or UEFA Cup football next season.

“I think I’m made to succeed in England, but of course it is one thing saying it and quite another getting there and then doing it.
“The Valencia president always told me he wouldn’t sell me until summer 2008. If an offer comes in I’m hungry to test myself in England.”
David Villa would surely cost us in the region of minimum £20m, is he worth it?
