Racing Santander have made an enquiry about taking Barcelona's highly-rated youngster Jeffren Suarez on loan for the forthcoming season, according to a report.
The 21-year-old has spent the summer training with Pep Guardiola's first-team squad and is said to be keen to play regularly at the highest level.
A move to El Sardinero could provide the Venezuelan-born winger with the chance that he craves and allow Barca to see how he grows when pitted against Primera Division opposition every week.
Jeffren travelled with Barcelona on tour to England and then the United States and it was across the Pond where he stood out as he finished joint top scorer.
Barcelona have no intention of allowing the player, who has represented Spain at Under-17, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, to leave - but a loan deal could suit them.
Racing Santander are still rebuilding after another relatively successful campaign last time out and adding loan players and bargain buys has been key to their continuity.
