Villa chief Paul Lambert revealed on Tuesday that they were hoping 'to reach a positive conclusion' with the 27-year-old Moroccan star's club side over a deal thought to be worth around £3million.
And El Ahmadi, who spent four seasons with FC Twente before signing for Feyenoord in 2008 for five million euros and has 10 caps for Morocco, confirmed that a switch to Villa Park is something that appeals greatly.
"This is a dream for any player. I hope that the move will take place. It's now up to the clubs to reach an agreement," He told RTV Rijnmond.
"I was on the verge of signing a new deal when this came up. I am 27 and that's the perfect age for a new challenge. The Premier League is the best league in the world in my opinion. I didn't need to think long about this.
"Everything is great here. If the clubs reached an agreement, it can be a done deal very quickly."
Ahmadi is known for his strong defensive qualities and would become Lambert's first major signing since replacing Alex McLeish as Villa manager last month.
