Arsenal are regarded as favourites for Barcelona striker David Villa ahead of Tottenham.

Punto Pelota says Barca are upset with Villa as he delays his decision over his next destination until after the Confederations Cup. Barca want the deal done as soon as possible so to fund their own transfer plans.

Arsenal, Spurs and Atletico Madrid are all chasing Villa, but the Gunners are favourites thanks to the presence of good friend Santi Cazorla at the Emirates.

Tottenham have made the best offer financially, but Arsenal first made contact with Villa in December, tabling a preliminary contract offer before Christmas.

Barca are insisting on at least £10 million for the Spain international.
