Romeu keen on Villa

Chelsea midfielder Oriol Romeu has welcomed speculation linking Barcelona striker David Villa with a move to Stamford Bridge.

David Villa: Has been linked with a move to the Premier League
 David Villa would join an already hefty contingent of Spanish internationals if he moved to Chelsea

Villa, 31, has been used sparingly by Barca after returning from long-term injury and has been the subject of reported interest from a number of clubs including Chelsea where Spanish internationals Romeu, Juan Mata and Fernando Torres already ply their trade.

Sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta insisted a deal to take Villa away from the Nou Camp is not imminent, claiming Barcelona don’t sell their best players halfway through a season. But Romeu, who joined Chelsea from Barcelona in 2011 is keen for Villa to make the move next.

“I don't know what Villa's situation is, but if a great player like him comes, the record goalscorer with the national team, he would be welcomed and we would be happy,” Romeu, who earlier this month underwent surgery on a serious knee injury, was quoted as telling Spanish radio show Esports Cope.

Andres Iniesta said he wasn’t aware of Villa’s situation but urged the striker to stay put, telling reporters: “I don't know if there's a chance (he could leave), I don't think so, although for me personally I wouldn't like it if he did, because Villa is a vital player.”
