Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have been alerted to the potential availability of James Milner, who is considering a transfer away from Manchester City after the World Cup this summer.

According to the Sunday People, the 28-year-old has grown increasingly frustrated by his lack of regular action, despite featuring in 31 of the 38 Premier League games in 2013/14.

Citizens boss Manuel Pellegrini has great strength in his midfield, and with Milner making only 17 starts during their title winning campagin, it could prompt him to force a move away from the Etihad Stadium.

Arsene Wenger is an alleged admirer of the utility man and could be ready to offer him the chance of joining him at the Emirates. However, the Gunners are unlikely to be willing to match his current £90,000-a-week wages, meaning that the midfielder would have to take a pay-cut in order to complete a switch to north London.

Tottenham could be another option for Milner this summer, but moving to White Hart Lane would remove any chance of featuring in the Champions League next season, after Spurs finished in sixth place in the Premier League last season.

Milner joined Manchester City from Aston Villa in a £20 million deal in 2010, but is expected to review his options when he returns from Brazil with the Three Lions later this summer.
