Barcelona flop Hleb favours Tottenham move

Barcelona midfielder Alex Hleb is keen on a move to Tottenham.

The Daily Mail says Barcelona are ready to off-load the Belarus midfielder and reports in Catalonia say Spurs and Sevilla have both put offers on the table.

Liverpool have also been linked and Hleb is said to favour a return to Arsenal, but he is determined to move to a team playing in Europe's top competition.

The 29-year-old did not take part in Barca's official team photo this week and looks certain to leave after being crowded out by the club's midfield riches.

He admitted last year that he should have never left Arsenal and now he could return to play for the Gunners' greatest rivals.

Hleb welcomed talk of Tottenham's interest earlier this month, calling them a 'great club' and his agent Oliver Mintzlaff confirmed the interest of both Sevilla and the Barclays Premier League club.
