Barca are believed to be growing frustrated with the Gunners' refusal to discuss a move for Fabregas and are now apparently switching their attention to Robben, who shone during the Bavarians' Champions League run and continues to perform well at the World Cup.
The Catalan giants are also confident that, even if their move for Fabregas fails this summer, they are sure to land him at the close of the 2010/11 season, even though his contract at the Emirates lasts until 2015.
The fact that Franck Ribery has already committed to Bayern also means that the Bundesliga outfit would be less reluctant to allow Robben to leave.
