Bundesliga club Borussia Monchengladbach are reportedly closing in on the signature of Barcelona defender Fernando Navarro.
Reports from the Spanish press claim that representatives of the five-time Bundesliga champions have watched Navarro on three separate occasions and have spoken to both the player and representatives of the Catalan club.
The Foals are keen to conclude a loan deal for Navarro, but face stiff competition from Liga side Zaragoza.
Navarro will consider himself unfortunate to be surplus to requirements at Camp Nou after beginning last season as a first team regular.
However, an unfortunate cruciate ligament injury curtailed the defender's season and seemingly his immediate future with Barca.
Navarro is currently playing for Barcelona's reserve team in the Spanish Third Division.
