The Catalans giants are currently in abysmal league form, having won just four matches, and coach Louis van Gaal is desperate to bring in reinforcements in a bid to salvage their flagging campaign.
Although the side are perfect in the Champions League this season, van Gaal's job is currently on the line as the side are just two points off the relegation zone.
Barca have looked weak in almost every position so far this term forcing van Gaal to reportedly ask president Joan Gaspart to begin negotiating for the tough-tackling Dutch international.
Xavi has been outstanding in central midfield for Barca this term, including last week's 3-1 win over Newcastle, however the Spanish international cannot do it all by himself.
Davids is keen to stay with Juve, however he is close friends with Barca's Patrick Kluivert and Michael Reiziger and that could tempt the star to take up the challenge of turning around the fortunes of one of Spain's fallen giants.
