Barcelona sporting director Txiki Begiristain has not ruled out swooping for Cesc Fabregas in the January transfer window.
The Catalan giants have made no secret of their admiration for the Spain international in the past and have admitted that they are keen to bring the midfielder back to the Nou Camp.
Fabregas came through the ranks at Barca but switched to Arsenal in summer 2003 with the belief that first-team chances would be easier to come by in London.
With Barca set to be without midfielders Yaya Toure and Seydou Keita when the African Cup of Nations begin in January Begiristain reveals that the club could delve into the transfer market to boost their squad.
"He's a player who fits the Barca profile," he said of Fabregas to Sport.
"He was born suckling on football here and one day he will end up playing at the Camp Nou. I am sure.
"There are options for us to strengthen (the squad) yes.
"We will see if any of our defenders can play in central midfield. It's an option. Depending on that, we could look to buy a forward."
