Barcelona are considering a move for Al Sadd striker Baghdad Bounedjah that will reunite him with new head coach Xavi Hernandez at Camp Nou.
The 29-year-old played alongside Xavi before being coached by him at the Qatari club.
The Algerian's impressive form in recent years has attracted the interest of Barca and a move for him is on the cards next January, according to Sport.
Bounedjah has 159 goals and 44 assists in 153 appearances at Al Sadd and has a deal that will expire in the summer of 2024.
He is currently valued at €6 million as per Transfermarkt.
Barcelona are facing a financial crisis but Xavi is determined to strengthen the squad by any means possible.
