Getafe midfielder Abdelaziz Barrada says he would relish the chance to move to the Premier League, with Everton and Newcastle reportedly chasing his signature.
The 23-year-old moved to Spain from Paris St-Germain in 2010, initially playing for Getafe's reserve side before signing a four-year contract with the senior team last season.
His performances for the Madrid-based club earned him international recognition with Morrocco and a place in their squad for the Olympic football tournament at London 2012.
Barrada insists he is happy to stay at Getafe for the time being but has urged any English clubs interested in signing him to step up their interest.
Everton and Newcastle are two sides reportedly tracking the midfielder, who is rated at around €4million (£3.1m).
Barrada admits he would jump at the chance to join either of them should they make an offer.
"It is at the stage of rumours at the moment, I heard of interest from Newcastle a long time ago, the Everton one has been in the papers," he told the Moroccan media.
"I am a Getafe player and happy to be here, if I am wanted by a club, they know what they have to do.
"Newcastle is an exciting team in a very big league, so is Everton, so to join one of them will be great.
"They have great tradition and are appealing to any player who wants to test himself against the best players."
