Barcelona have their sights set on signing Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic in the January transfer window.

The Catalan club are desperately seeking reinforcements and have identified the 23-year-old as a viable option.

It is believed that the Blaugrana will target the American on an initial loan deal if they can convince the European champions to part ways with the speedster.

Mundo Deportivo report that Pulisic's lack of game time in a team packed full of attacking talent means he could be open to a move.

The United States international has had injury problems this season but has still scored twice in six league appearances for the Blues.

The Spanish giants see Pulisic as an alternative to Manchester City's Ferran Torres, who is likely to command a substantial fee before any negotiations can begin.

Xavi is set on strengthening his side after seeing them exit the Champions League and lose further ground to Real Madrid in LaLiga.

The beleaguered club could also attempt to poach either Andreas Christensen or Antonio Rudiger in the summer.

However, the Daily Star report that Tottenham are also interested in Christensen and Rudiger is said to be holding out for a new contract worth up to £400,000 a week.

Both Paris Saint-Germain and Lyon are interested in signing wantaway Manchester United forward Anthony Martial, according to 90min.

The Frenchman has struggled to break into the starting XI under both ex-boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and interim coach Ralf Rangnick and his agent confirmed he would prefer to leave than fight for first-team action.

The Guardian report that Everton, Newcastle and Leicester could battle it out for the signature of Brentford defender Pontus Jansson — the Swedish international is out of contract in the summer.

Finally, Liverpool's Divock Origi is a target for multiple Serie A clubs including AC Milan and Atalanta, according to Tutto Mercato.
