Tagliafico, an Ajax midfielder, is attempting to join Barcelona next week.

Nicolas Tagliafico, a left-back for Ajax, has expressed an interest in joining FC Barcelona in Catalonia next week.

Football journalist Fabrizio Romano confirmed the news on Sunday.

Both Ajax and Barça, however, are undecided as to what type of deal they want to pursue.

Ajax is looking for a permanent deal, setting Tagliafico’s price tag at €7 million. Barcelona, meanwhile, wants to bring in the 29-year-old on a six-month loan.

The Argentine considers the move to be a huge chance for his career and is hoping that his Dutch side will let him leave on loan.

In Barcelona’s game against Athletic Club last Thursday, in which they were knocked out of the Copa del Rey, left back Jordi Alba had put up a poor display.

The Spaniard was responsible for the first goal, failing to properly track Nico Williams on the break, before giving away a penalty in extra time.

Alba’s loss of form over recent years has drawn criticism from fans of the club on social media, this may explain the desire of the Barcelona board to bring in a left-back in the winter.

Barcelona has also been linked to Jose Luis Gaya of Valencia, but any move for him in the winter seems impossible. La Masia graduate Alejandro Grimaldo is also rumored with a switch.
