Afellay To Make £6m North London Move?

By on July 10, 2012

With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Arsenal and Tottenham have been alerted to the news that Ibrahim Afellay is made available for transfer.

Ibrahim Afellay

Arsenal and Tottenham have been alerted to the news that Barcelona have made playmaker Ibrahim Afellay available for transfer, according to the Express.

The report claims that Barca are ready to cash in on the Dutch international this summer and the north London duo have shown an interest in bringing him to England.

Until now the Spanish giants have insisted they wanted to keep hold of the 26-year-old but with a limited transfer budget available this summer, new manager Tito Vilanova has been forced to sell some of his existing squad in order to raise funds for the purchase of Jordi Alba and the prospective deal for Javier Martinez, and Afellay and Adriano are the ones for the chop.

The Catalans are willing to entertain bids of around £6m for the midfielder which will interest long-term admirers Arsenal, as well as Tottenham who the express claim have had two offers rejected for the player in recent years.

Football Talk Verdict

Afellay would be an excellent signing for either Arsenal or Tottenham this summer, and £6m could prove to be the bargain of the century.

However, only if the player can steer clear of injury. Afellay has a poor injury record and no doubt that’s the reason for his low price-tag. But i think he’s worth a punt, as his talent is beyond question.

    Let RVP run out his contract. Gives us 1 more years grace to find replacements. Funny thing is we always sell our best players, but still always finish higher than the duds.

    NO – the guy is an liability. Talented? No doubt but a huge laiability with his injury record. Could be another Diaby and this is not the time to take risks.
