Eidur Gudjohnsen is likely to leave Barcelona during the close-season, according to his agent and father. The former Bolton and Chelsea striker has made 72 league appearances for the Catalans, scoring 10 times, since arriving in 2006 and was an unused substitute in the club's Champions League final success against Manchester United in May. But despite being under contract until 2010, reports in Spain suggest Gudjohnsen will now depart for around €5 million, a fee that is believed to have interested several English sides, including Blackburn Rovers, West Ham and Tottenham Hotspur. And Arnor Gudjohsen, the forward's father and agent, has revealed that he expects to talk with all of the interested parties next week. "It is a real possibility that Eidur could leave Barcelona this summer," he told skysports.com. "Barcelona have not told Eidur yet, but I have seen the reports that he could go. "There is interest from a number of clubs in Eidur and I expect serious discussions with clubs next week. "Eidur would be open to a move back to England as he knows everything in England and it would seriously appeal to him."
