Werner to Barcelona?

Barcelona have identified Chelsea forward Timo Werner as a potential loan target for January.

The Blaugrana recently confirmed Xavi as their new manager, and the hierarchy are expected to back him with new signings.

With the tight financial situation, the club are likely to prioritise initial loan deals. Marca claims that Werner is on their radar.

The German has experienced a mixed career with the Blues. He has been in-and-out of the line-up this term, but remains a key figure.

Werner is currently out of the sidelines with a hamstring injury. There has been no update from the Blues over his comeback date.

They are not actively planning to part ways with the marksman, but the Blaugrana are preparing an approach for January.

A new striker remains a priority for the Catalan giants with Sergio Aguero and Martin Braithwaite currently on the sidelines.

Luuk de Jong has failed to impress. Aside from Werner, the Blaugrana have their sights on Manchester United's Edinson Cavani.
