Barcelona are prepared to part with tricky winger Jeffren this summer if the right club comes calling.

The 23-year-old is keen to find regular first-team football and accepts that he will need to leave Camp Nou in order to get those opportunities.

He is currently on a high following his exploits at the European U21 Championships, where he helped Spain to continental glory.

A number of eye-catching displays at that event helped to enhance his reputation and it was expected that there would be plenty of willing takers this summer.

Barca, though, insist they have had no offers so far, much to the surprise of sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta.

Active

The Catalan giants are, however, working hard to strike a deal which will be beneficial to all concerned.

"I can assure you that the market isn't as active as people say," said Zubizarreta.

"We are working with his agent and we will look for the best place for him to continue his career."

Premier League outfit Bolton are among those reported to be weighing up a move for Jeffren.
