Arsenal and Tottenham to target Barcelona starlet Bojan Krkic - report

Arsenal and Tottenham are set to lock horns this summer, as the north London rivals prepare moves for Barcelona striker Bojan Krkic, according to reports from Spain.

El Mundo Deportivo believes that both clubs are interested in the 20-year-old, who has been on the periphery of Pep Guardiola's first team for much of the season.

Bojan recently signed a new contract at the Nou Camp until the summer of 2015, but has managed just three league goals in 19 appearances as he struggles to displace Barca’s first-choice front three of Lionel Messi, David Villa and Pedro.

The arrival of Ibrahim Afellay has edged the Spaniard further down the pecking order, and while the player himself believes he can still be a success for the champions, he has refused to close the door on a move elsewhere.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp and chairman Daniel Levy have made no secret of their desire to sign a striker of European calibre, and with speculation mounting that Danish forward Nicklas Bendtner could leave the Emirates during the summer, a move from both clubs seems plausible.

In a recent interview with Barca TV, Bojan admitted: "I like the Premier League a lot," alerting both Gunners boss Arsene Wenger and Spurs’ Harry Redknapp to his potential availability.

Chelsea, along with Serie A sides Juventus and Napoli, have also been linked with a possible move, but it is unclear whether the Catalan giants would entertain any approach for a player who is still held in high regard.
