‘Sport’ says on their front page this Wednesday that Barcelona have got Hakim Ziyech in mind. Barca are reportedly looking at getting the Moroccan on loan if they cannot get hold of Raheem Sterling.

The January transfer window is drawing ever closer and Barcelona are starting to look at signing new players. Of course, the approval of new coach Xavi is required and his team will be taking on Espanyol in the derby this Saturday.

Recently, Man City’s Raheem Sterling was linked with the Catalans although the latest information suggest that the move will not be able to be carried out in January and the club will have to wait until the summer.

While Sterling’s arrival at the club remains a doubt, ‘Sport’ says on its front page this Wednesday that Hakim Ziyech of Chelsea is Barca’s second choice if they cannot get the England international.

The cited media outlet says that it would be a loan deal and that Barca believe they have a chance of completing the deal. The Moroccan is not a nailed-on starter under Tuchel and he could look for minutes elsewhere.

If the 28-year-old joins Barca, the versatile attacker would be a terrific signing for the Catalans.
