Inter Milan are lining up a January move for Barcelona striker Bojan Krkic.
Catalan sources say Krkic could be on the move in the winter market, with Inter among clubs monitoring the situation.
The 20-year-old Spaniard is fresh from a World Cup victory, but is finding little playing time at the Nou Camp.
It is possible he will push for a January loan move elsewhere so that he can prove himself.

It appears that £12m rated Bojan Krkic is garnering a lot of speculation this season. The youngster is finding it hard to cement a regular first team spot and has seen Pedro leap ahead of him in the pecking order and this has led to talk of a move away from the Nou Camp.
In many ways a move may be just what the Spanish international needs to re-ignite a career that appear to be in something of a rut. The pint sized attacker is something of a cult hero with Barca fans but that won’t be enough to keep the 20 year old from being unhappy about being a bench warmer.
A move to Arsenal may appear to make the most sense given that Arsene Wenger is obviously well known for trusting in youth and perhaps given the paucity of striking options a move to the Emirates will suit the Gunners a great deal. Constant injury concerns relating to Nicklas Bendtner and Robin Van Persie has basically left the north London club having to rely on Marouane Chamakh and fortunately the Moroccan has adjusted well to life in the Premier League.
Rafa Benitez may well feel he has the upper hand as he is after all in charge of a treble winning side but Bojan may feel he could end up simply warming the bench at the San Siro.
