The latest report suggests talks for the Nerazzurri superstar are set to take place.
The Swedish international has never fully committed his future to the Milanese giants and Laporta is attempting to prize the former Juventus star to his Treble winning side.
After negotiations for Valencia hitman David Villa broke down, the Blaugrana patron claimed the club would be exploring other options and it seems one of them could be 'Ibracadabra.'
Earlier in the summer, reports also emerged that a swap deal between the two clubs that would see the ex-Ajax player move to the Catalan club and Samuel Eto'o move in the opposite direction was in place, but the transfer never materialised.
The two club's have been involved in a fair bit of activity with one another lately, as Barcelona have already confirmed they will be signing Inter left-back Maxwell for approximately €5 million and on Thursday stories emerged that the Serie A outfit were on the verge of taking Aliaksandr Hleb on-loan.
It remains to be seen of the two sides will iron out a deal on this front.
