Serie A is getting better, according to Inter and Italy star Antonio Candreva, but the 31-year-old is keen to challenge himself abroad.

Candreva opened up to Calcio 2000 magazine on playing in Italy and his plans for the future.

Many fans around Europe consider Serie A to be a league on the rise against and it is arguably home to the only real title race left in Europe’s top five leagues.

“Serie A is showing this season that not only is it always a difficult league, but also now has some very entertaining games,” Candreva explained.

“I think Italian teams are improving and can do well in Europe too.”

Despite his praise for his home league, Candreva admitted he would love to test himself in England.

“I really like the Premier League, as it’s an exceptional competition,” he said.

“I’d love to have a go at playing in the Premier League.”

Candreva also addressed recent criticism he’s received over some of his performances.

“I never felt the pressure of playing at San Siro.

“We are talking about a crowd that knows its football and has seen world class players, so naturally it demands a high level of performance.

“That is why we must be careful to make as few mistakes as possible.”
