Officials from the Serie A club have been in Spain to negotiate a deal.
With Barcelona being heavily linked with Inter Milan goalkeeper Samir Handanovic, officials from the club have traveled to Catalonia to try and negotiate a deal, reports Tuttosport.
When Barca showed initial interest in the 28-year-old earlier in the year it was thought that Inter would accept no less than €30m, but in a bid to raise funds for new players the Serie A side are willing to drop the price to €23m.
The La Liga champions have been keeping tabs on Handanovic as they look for a long term replacement for Victor Valdes – who is expected to leave the Nou Camp at the end of next season at the very latest.
The Slovenian has been in fine form at the San Siro, despite a disappointing campaign for the club as a whole and has therefore caught the eye of the Catalans.
Handanovic played 48 matches for Inter in total during the 2012/13 season and was one of the more influential figures in the squad.
The stopper has spent just one year in Milan since his £10.6m transfer from fellow Serie A side Udinese in the summer of 2012.
Yet a chance to switch to Barca, especially after such a poor term in Italy, is likely to be too tempting for the Slovenia international and the club are clearly keen to cash in on Handanovic whilst he is in demand.
If the move went through it would of course add fuel to the speculation that Valdes is on his way out, with super-rich Ligue 1 side AS Monaco looking like the most likely destination.
Here’s some examples of Handanovic’s amazing record saving penalties.
