Premier League - Falcao eyes Chelsea move

Falcao, 25, has been strongly linked with a possible transfer to Stamford Bridge since the arrival of Villas-Boas and has now said he hopes to move clubs, with the Premier League preferable to La Liga.

"There is a club that I dream to play for," Falcao said. "They are foreign but I do not want to say who it is now.

"The Spanish league is good, but I prefer the Premier League as there is a better atmosphere on the field.

"I never thought I would score so many goals. It has been a surprise for me and I have benefited from the quality that we have in our team. I have matured in every respect and I am qualified to play in any big league."

Falcao scored a record 17 goals as Porto won the Europa League last season and the Colombia international is expected to address his future following the Copa America.

Meanwhile, Porto team-mate Joao Moutinho has played down speculaton linking him with a move to Chelsea.

"It is good to see my name associated with a great club, but it is also true I am already at a great club, FC Porto, where I will continue to work," the midfielder told O Jogo.
