Arsenal are lining up a bid for Dutch international Ibrahim Afellay, according to the Sun. The 24-year-old midfielder has been linked with the Gunners over the past 12 months and is now entering the final year of his contract with PSV and Arsene Wenger may think now is the time to tempt them into a sale or they risk losing him for nothing next summer.

Afellay is rated at around the £7m mark by PSV and his creativity and ability to play across the midfield is attractive to Wenger. It remains to be seen whether the Arsenal boss  is considering Afellay as a potential replacement for Cesc Fabregas, should the Spaniard leave Arsenal and join Barcelona this summer.

The players agent admits that his client could yet stay at PSV but there are teams interested in his services.

“It’s possible Ibrahim will want to stay at PSV but there is a chance of a move elsewhere.

“In football, you never know. There are teams interested in him for sure.”
