Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are set to go head to head in a bid to bring Barcelona winger Ibrahim Afellay to the Premier League.

Both Kenny Dalglish and Harry Redknapp are interested in taking the Holland international on loan and the Catalan club could be willing to let him leave for a year, according to talkSPORT.

The 26-year-old has been absent through injury since September last year and is looking to get some first team football to regain match fitness, something both the Anfield and White Hart Lane clubs are willing to offer.

Afellay joined Barca in January of last year from Dutch side PSV Eindhoven, the club where he came through the youth ranks and then established himself as a key first team player.

Before his injury, a cruciate ligament tear, Afellay had been unable to force his way into the first team and was used mainly as a late substitute.
