Barcelona are continue to monitor developments with Andrey Santos, the Chelsea teenager who is currently on loan at Nottingham Forest.
They were interested in the player when he first broke thorough as Vasco da Gama, but their financial situation at the time ruled out them making a bid.
Instead he joined Chelsea in January, but remained with Vasco on loan for the rest of the season.
Mauricio Pochettino subsequently determined he was not part of his plans for the season ahead, and he was allowed to join Forest instead, although he has yet to make a league appearance for them.
His only senior minutes came in the Carabao Cup defeat to Burnley.
Now with indications that the player is not entirely happy with the Premier Leahue and life in England, Barcelona have been given renewed hope that they could yet sign a player who was tipped for the very top in his native Brazil.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
