Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur Alerted As Price Is Set For Afellay

Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly been alerted to the price of Ibrahim Afellay, after Barcelona said that he could be available for as little as 6 million.

 

According to talkSport, the 26 year-old is being made available for the cut-price fee as the Spanish giants prepare for a summer overhaul.

 

Dutchman Afellay, who created the first goal in Holland's 2-0 victory over Slovakia last night, joined Barcelona from PSV during the 2011 January transfer window.

 

However, he missed most of his first full season in Spain, after sustaining a knee ligament injury in September.

 

The injury limited him to just five appearances this year, and while it was expected that Barcelona would send him on loan to get a full season of game time under his belt, it appears as though they are prepared to sell him.

 

Afellay was considered one of Europe's most exciting attacking talents prior to his lengthy absence, with both Liverpool and Tottenham believed to have been interested in him in the past.

 

With the player now available for such a small fee, both clubs are expected to battle it out for his signature.
