Barcelona urge Spurs, Arsenal, Liverpool to bid for Afellay
Barcelona are ready to sell Ibrahim Afellay - with the Premier League the most likely destination. El Mundo Deportivo says Barca need to sell the Dutchman to have enough cash to win the race for Athletic Bilbao midfielder Javi Martinez.
Afellay recently rejected a €7 million move to Lille, but would welcome a switch to England.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers sees Afellay as an alternative to Gylfi Sigurdsson, who snubbed Anfield for Spurs. Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas still needs to add creativity to his squad with the futures of Luka Modric and Rafael van der Vaart both in doubt.
