“I like Chelsea and Liverpool,” Ardaiz told The Sun. “I love the Premier League and want to play here. I watch lots of games and like the Manchester derby when you feel the atmosphere.

“People have said I have similar characteristics to Zlatan Ibrahimovic. I’ve been working very hard on the physical side of my game to get to Europe.”

2016-17 Premier League title race

Chelsea, Liverpool and City will all be aiming to win the Premier League title next season.

The Citizens will probably start the 2016-17 campaign as favourites, with Pep Guardiola taking over.

The Blues endured a disappointing 2015-16 season in the Premier League, and under new manager Antonio Conte, the Blues will be aiming to finish in the top four and challenge for the championship.

Liverpool will probably not be strong enough to launch a challenge for the Premier League title next season, but Jurgen Klopp’s side should be good enough to at least fight for a top-four finish.

Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur will be the other main challengers for the Premier League title next season.
