Valencia winger Vicente expects to join a Premier League club on a free transfer this summer and will make a decision on his future in the next few days.
The 29-year-old is out of contract with Valencia at the end of this month after 11 years with the Primera Liga side.
Blackburn, Newcastle and top-flight newcomers Swansea have all been linked with a swoop for the former Spain international.
And Vicente admits he "desires to play in the Premier League" and is close to reaching a deal.
He told Spanish newspaper Superdeporte: "In a few days I will decide my future and it will be in England."
Vicente has notched up almost 250 appearances for Valencia since arriving from boyhood side Levante back in 2000.
