July 13, 2006

Valencia have revealed they are interested in signing Chelsea defender Asier Del Horno.

Club president Juan Soler confirmed the Primera Liga side are keen to recruit the 25-year-old Spain international, and are currently trying to secure a deal to lure him away from Stamford Bridge.

Del Horno, who joined the Premiership champions from Athletic Bilbao last summer, has struggled to command a regular place in Jose Mourinho's side after initially making a promising start for the London club.

'Del Horno is a very interesting player and our technical team has been following him,' Soler told Las Provincias newspaper.
