Premier League duo eye surprise Barca raid this summer.
Arsenal and Manchester City are linked as surprise suitors to sign Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic in the summer transfer window, according to Mundo Deportivo.
Both clubs have reportedly approached the Croatian international after he recently fell out of favour at the Nou Camp, with the teams in need of some strengthening in midfield for next season.
Rakitic previously caught the eye of some top European clubs at his former side Sevilla, though he has not managed to establish himself at Barcelona after some indifferent form.
It could be that the Catalan giants will now let him leave, and the Premier League could be his next destination.
