World Cup star would prefer Serie A switch over Premier League

Ecuador striker Enner Valencia is hoping that his World Cup form can open the door for a switch to Europe this summer, as reported by Sky Sports.

Valencia notched three goals in Brazil and was one of the rising stars of the World Cup, however he has only been with current club Pachuca of Mexico for less than six months.

The 25-year-old is keen to make a switch to Europe and hopefully Italy as he dreams of playing in Serie A.

West Ham were thought to be interested in the powerful forward but it seems a move to the Premier League is not at the top of Valencia’s wish-list.

“It would be a good moment to move to Europe, after what I have done in Mexico and at the World Cup,” Valencia told TV Azteca.

“I really like Italian football but if this jump to Europe happens, I will welcome it and try to do my best wherever I go.

“These are the best leagues in the world.

“If there is an opportunity to move to one of them, you have to do it.”
