Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin says that he would love to take a 'step up' and join Chelsea this summer.
Godin, 25, has impressed in La Liga for Villarreal and now Atletico since moving to Spain in 2007, but has now set his sights on progressing his career in the English Premier League.
The Uruguay centre-back claims Atletico turned down a bid from Chelsea in the January transfer window and that he would welcome a move to London if the chance arose again.
However, the Premier League giants are thought to be back in for the highly-rated stopper, and he insists he would welcome a switch to Stamford Bridge if they come knocking again.
Godin said in the Daily Mirror: "In January, Atletico received an offer but the transfer did not happen. They had already sold other players and did not want to weaken the team further then.
"For Chelsea to still be interested in having me is an honour and means I must be playing well. Who would not want to play there? To do so would be a step up."
