With Gavi now ruled out for the season and more due to a severe knee injury, Barcelona could be set to go to the market in the January transfer window.

Outlet Mundo Deportivo today features a list of players the Camp Nou side could target, and we get to see a Liverpool player getting a mention.

That’s Thiago Alcantara, who previously belonged to Barcelona and is now seen as a candidate for a comeback to the club.

The midfielder’s contract with Liverpool expires at the end of the season, and that could be a way for the La Liga giants to have him cheaper than their other options.

He’s said to be one of the solutions that would fit their ‘objective’, which is to have a short-term replacement for Gavi until the end of the season.

Alcantara has been struggling with injuries, and is still to play for Liverpool this season, currently working his way back into the fold at Anfield and get some game time under his belt.

In case Barcelona do come for him, maybe that’s an interesting opportunity for the Reds to make a couple of millions with a player who could soon be walking for free.
