Ex-Gunner tipped for Liverpool or Spurs

Published Add your comment

Former Arsenal midfielder Aleksandr Hleb looks to be edging closer to a Premier League return.

The Belarus international has been frustrated with a lack of first team opportunities at Barcelona since he left the Emirates in 2008, and is reportedly desperate for a return to England.

According to the Daily Mail, the 29-year-old has been subject to interest from Liverpool and Tottenham as both look to bolster their attacking options.

However, Hleb is thought to favour playing in the Champions League and any deal could hinge on Spurs progressing to the group stages of the competition.

Harry Redknapp's men currently trail 3-2 to Swiss side Young Boys after the first leg of their qualification tie, but will be confident they can win through tournament proper with victory at White Hart Lane.

Speculation surrounding Hleb's future with Barca has increased in recent weeks and - should Spurs make it through to the premier European tournament for the first time - he looks set to leave the Nou Camp after not featuring in the official team photo for the Catalonian giants.

The versatile former Stuggart man has also been touted to stay in Spain - with Sevilla reportedly expressing an interest in his signature.
