Anfield side keen on Nou Camp starlet.
Arsenal and Liverpool are chasing Barcelona star Bojan Krkic, according to reports in Spain.
Much was expected of the young striker after his prolific form throughout the club’s youth ranks, but he has so far failed to produce his best in the first team.
The 20-year-old has often struggled to break into Barca’s star-studded starting line-up and has been utilised mainly from the bench in the last four seasons.
But sources in Spain have suggested that Bojan will look to move on in the summer in a bid to secure more regular first-team football.
The striker has started just seven La Liga games all season, and only 40 since his breakthrough into the first team in 2007.
Now Barcelona are reportedly ready to let him leave and Arsenal and Liverpool are among a host of clubs who are keen on making a bid for him in the summer.
Kenny Dalglish and Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli are planning for the long term and the club’s new owners are ready to hand the Anfield boss a significant financial windfall to invest in new signings and a move for Bojan would be a wise one.
The talented attacker doesn’t get much of a look in at the Nou Camp and has now been overtaken in the pecking order by the likes of Pedro and Dutch winger Ibrahim Afellay and appears open to a move away from the Catalan giants in order to get his career back on track.
Comolli has experience of wrestling away young talent from Barcelona having brought Giovani to Tottenham when he was at the White Hart Lane club. Liverpool are looking for new creative options in the final third but will have to battle the likes of Arsenal and Juventus for the Spanish international.
Having signed Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez in January it is believed that Dalglish is looking to make way for new signings with the likes of Joe Cole, Milan Jovanovic, Christian Poulsen, Paul Konchesky and David Ngog all linked with moves away from the Merseyside club.
