As La Liga side Valencia concede defeat and place their prized possession on the open market, three teams appear to be heading the chase for a goalscorer par excellence.

David Villa’s a talent well worth fighting over, but I would imagine that the current valuation could increase significantly if he performs well at Euro 2008. Liverpool fans have been speculating and salivating at the prospect of the Spaniard teaming up with El Nino whilst Arsenal supporters will be keen to get a lethal finisher to add to their impressive playing staff, and Spurs may well see the Valencia man as a potential replacement for Dimitar Berbatov who may or may not be on his way. Whose fans want him the most?
