Arsenal and Tottenham are chasing Barcelona winger Ibrahim Afellay.

The Daily Express says Barcelona is expected to accept bids for Afellay of around £6million opening the door to both Arsenal and Spurs.

North London duo Arsenal and Tottenham are both long-term admirers of the player, with Gunners skipper Robin van Persie enjoying a close personal relationship, while Spurs have twice failed with loan-to-buy offers in recent years.
