Barcelona striker David Villa looks set to be one of the last big names of the January window being involved in a battle for his signature, with both Arsenal and Manchester City wanting to complete a transfer for him.

The former Valencia forward is in demand from the two Premier League sides after not managing to work his way back into the first team on a regular basis since recovering from his broken leg last year.

Villa has started only seven times in La Liga for Barça and has had seven appearances as a substitute, scoring five times this season.

Arsenal have been linked with a move (via Goal.com) for some time, while Manchester City are a latecomer to the party having offloaded troublesome forward Mario Balotelli (via Mirror Football).
