Tottenham Hotspur are being linked with a £5million move for Barcelona playmaker Ibrahim Afellay.
Metro claims Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is weighing up a move for the 27-year-old, who spent last season on loan Schalke before injury cut short his campaign with the Bundesliga outfit.
Back to full fitness, the Dutch international is now looking for a new challenge, the paper claims, after receiving limited opportunities with the La Liga champions following his move from PSV Eindhoven in 2011.
Barca have been reluctant to sell in the past, but are now ready to let the player leave the Nou Camp and will listen to offers in the region of £5million.
Afellay can play either behind the striker or in a wide position, and has earned 44 caps for Netherlands since making his international debut back in 2007.
Andre Villas-Boas is looking to freshen up his Tottenham Hotspur attack this summer, according to the report, and views Afellay as a player who can provide strong competition for places at White Hart Lane.
The Dutchman would fit into a number of positions as part of the 4-2-3-1 formation that the Spurs boss likes to play, but Arsenal have been linked with a move in the past and could offer some competition for the signature.
