According to El Chiringuito via The Sun, new Barcelona boss Xavi is keen on signing Chelsea midfielder Saul Niguez in January.

Saul joined Chelsea on loan in the summer from La Liga champions Atletico Madrid, with the Blues having an option to make the move permanent, but he has so far struggled to make an impact.

Chelsea paid a £4.3m loan fee to sign Saul, with the option to make the deal permanent at the end of the season for £35m.

But he has started only once in the Premier League so far and was hooked at half-time after a nightmare first-half display in a 3-0 win against Aston Villa.

Barcelona reportedly want to sign Saul on loan in January and Chelsea will reportedly not fight to keep him if he is recalled by Atletico Madrid.
