Daniele De Rossi has admitted he is attracted by the Barclays Premier League ahead of Italy's European Championship clash with England.

De Rossi, who signed a new five-year contract with Roma in February, appeared to reignite speculation about his future on Wednesday when he claimed English football was "more interesting" than its Italian counterpart.

The midfielder has previously been linked with Manchester City and Manchester United and claimed he had received several offers to defect to the Premier League. He said: "I have received many offers from English football. And I must say that I feel attraction for it."
