The La Liga giants are on the track of Lanus keeper Esteban Andrada, despite the fact that the 20-year-old is yet to appear in the Argentine club's first-team
The La Liga champions have been scouting the 20-year-old keeper, currently Lanus' third-choice behind Mauricio Caranta and Agustin Marchesin.
"Although I'm very comfortable at Lanus, it is impossible not to get my hopes up about the thought of playing for Barcelona. I did not expect this at all, but know that it is best to be quiet and hope it all works out," the keeper told Ole.
Lanus' president Nicholas Russo has also confirmed that the club will meet with representatives of Barcelona on Sunday to negotiate a deal for Andrada, with the player likely to make a move to Spain this summer.
Andrada appeared for Argentina in the South American Youth Championships earlier this year in Peru, picking up the award for best goalkeeper of the tournament.
PSV Eindhoven were linked with a move for the player in February but could not agree a deal with Lanus for the South American shot-stopper.
