A number of Premier League could be alerted following reports that Barcelona are looking to send their highly-rated prospect Gerard Deulofeu out on loan to an English club.
El Mundo Deportivo suggest that the Catalan giants want the promising 19-year-old to experience first team football at the highest level after outgrowing Barcelona's B ranks and have identified either the Premier League or the Bundesliga as ideal locations.
Deulofeu, who is currently away with the Spain squad at the Under-20 World Cup in Turkey, has been linked with a loan moves to Sevilla and Valencia in his homeland, but it is suggested Barcelona want the latest prodigy to emerge from their revered La Masia academy to continue his development with a club vying for honours.
With the La Liga champions not willing to aid the efforts of those challenging around them in their domestic league, a move away from Spain could be on the cards.
Borussia Dortmund have already been suggested as a possible destination for the young Spaniard. The Champions League finalists are still in the midst of trying to reinforce their attacking options with Mario Gotze poised to join Bayern Munich next week, with the creative Deulofeu seemingly a perfect fit for Jurgen Klopp's side.
But the Premier League could represent another option. Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal have previously been credited with interest in the attacking winger who would be seen as a useful addition despite his tender years.
El Mundo suggest Barcelona would be very reluctant to allow the teenager to join a club in Serie A on loan after seeing the development of young striker Bojan Krkic stall during his convoluted move to Italy.
Technically a Roma player, Barcelona still have an option to buy the 22-year-old back after allowing him to leave the Camp Nou in 2011, harbouring desires that the striker would garner experience at the highest level before returning to Cataluña as a polished presence up front.
But Bojan struggled at Roma amid managerial changes before he was subsequently loaned to AC Milan last season, leaving his future in limbo for the time being.
Barca head coach Tito Vilanova would reportedly rather have Deulofeu remain with the Barca B ranks next season while training with the first team. But the youngster himself remains open on the subject of his future and will talk to the club once he returns from international duty.
"I have not spoken about anything - I'm going away with the national team, then we'll talk about what we have to talk about with the club," Deulofeu said at the beginning of the month.
"Of course I look at the first team, but it is complicated. There are very good players. I'll talk to the club and see what the best decision is."
