Arsenal and Liverpool boosted by Barca clear out

Premier League duo Arsenal and Liverpool are hoping to take advantage of the max-exodus at Barcelona this summer, according to talkSPORT.

New boss Luis Enrique is expected to ring the changes at the Nou Camp this summer, with Bojan Kirkic and Ibrahim Afellay at the top of his clear out list.

And both Arsenal and Liverpool are exploring the possibility of bringing them to the Premier League in cut-price deals.

Bojan became the youngest player to represent Barcelona in La Liga at just 17-years-old back in 2007, but has since struggled to live up to his potential, bypassing a permanent move to Roma before the Catalan giants exercised their buy-out clause in 2011.

Afellay’s performances in the 2010 World Cup for Holland led to Barcelona bringing him to Spain in January 2011, but the 28-year-old has been blighted with injuries ever since and is thought to be open to a fresh start in the Premier League.

Arsene Wenger and Brendan Rodgers are looking to takes advantage of some bargain transfers this summer in order to strengthen their respective bids for top-flight glory next term, and will see both Nou Camp outcasts as ideal acquisitions this summer.
