Ambitious Man Utd, Chelsea and Man City loan deals eyed by Barcelona for January

Barcelona are eyeing up a number of ambitious loan deals from three Premier League clubs in January as they look to bolster their attacking options amid an injury crisis.

Due to their torrid financial situation, the Catalan giants are likely to target loan deals rather than permanent signings, and president Joan Laporta insisted recently he wants to bring at least three players in.

Any arrivals will however be dependent on others leaving the club.

Due to the long-term absence of Sergio Aguero, and with Martin Braithwaite still out injured, Barcelona will be after an attacker or two when the window opens.

Spanish newspaper Marca suggests that Chelsea forward Timo Werner is high on the club's wish list, along with Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling and Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani – who have both been linked with the Spanish club in the past few weeks.

Werner has struggled for form and goals since arriving in west London, and despite winning the Champions League last season, his stint at Chelsea has been far from successful.

Between Werner, Sterling and Cavani, who is most likely to succeed at Barcelona? Let us know what you think in the comments section below…

The arrival of centre-forward Romelu Lukaku has put the German's future at the club in doubt, though Blues manager Thomas Tuchel has played the two together on occasion this season.

Sterling meanwhile has fallen down City boss Pep Guardiola's pecking order and is rumoured to be considering a move away to find first-team football.

Although new Barca boss Xavi recently announced that the club was trying to tie down winger Ousmane Dembele to a new deal at the Nou Camp, which could potential scupper a move for the Englishman.

A deal for Cavani feels like the most sensible – and likely – move for Barca in January.

The Uruguayan has lost his place in United's first team since Cristiano Ronaldo returned to the club, and his proven track record of scoring goals across Europe's biggest leagues is impossible to ignore.
