The Spanish powerhouse are looking to add the tricky South American attacker to their squad in the summer transfer window and have set their sights on luring him from Italy
Sanchez's agent reportedly met with representatives of the Spanish giants ahead of last Tuesday's Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid to discuss a possible move in the summer transfer window.
Barcelona are looking to add an extra attacker to their squad ahead of the 2011-12 campaign and the 22-year-old Sanchez is one of the club's primary targets in the transfer market.
However, they will face an uphill task to lure the Chile international away from his current club as Udinese are determined to hold out on their €30 million (£26.2m) asking price for Sanchez, as Goal.com exclusively revealed earlier this month.
Aside from Barcelona, clubs such as Inter, Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are also keen on signing the tricky attacker.
