Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova has told Ibrahim Afellay he can’t guarantee him a regular game next season.
TMW says Vilanova met with Afellay yesterday to discuss his situation and informed the Dutchman he won’t be a first-choice.
Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham are monitoring developments closely – but no offers have yet arrived from England. The one bid to arrive came from Lille – but they’ve now dropped their pursuit after snapping up Chelsea ace Salomon Kalou.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is expected to move for Afellay should he sell Walcott in the coming weeks.
