Mehmet Topal's agent, Batur Altiparnak, claims Manchester City and Chelsea are both interested in signing the Valencia midfielder.
The 25-year-old has made seven appearances for the Spanish side this season. He joined the club in 2010 from Galatasaray for a reported €5.5million.
Topal's agent, Batur Altiparnak, claims that whilst he is happy at the Estadio Mestalla, his client would relish playing for Manchester City or Chelsea.
Altiparnak told IBTimes: "They (Chelsea and Manchester City) have been watching him for two months now but I must stress there is nothing concrete from either club.
"We will reassess his future at the end of the season. He is happy in Valencia and has two and a half years left on his contract.
"Obviously if the opportunity arose for him to take the next step in his career he would like to take it, but only if Valencia are willing.
"The Premier League is one of the best leagues in the world, but so is the Spanish Primera Division."
With a release clause of around £8.5million the defensive midfielder is easily affordable for Andre Villas-Boas or Roberto Mancini.
Topal has also confirmed he would love a move to England.
He told the Dogan News Agency: "I know there are teams following me. This makes me incredibly happy. The Premier League is my dream.
"However, Spain also makes me very happy and I have dreams I want to accomplish here. At the end of the season, I'll come to a decision."
