Barcelona midfielder eyes Premier League move

Published Add your comment

Out-of-favour Barcelona midfielder Victor Vazquez will consider a move to the Barclays Premier League with Blackburn Rovers offering to take him on loan for the rest of the season.

Vazquez, 23, has found first-team opportunities limited at the Nou Camp this season and is said to be keen on a spell in England whereby he can gain some much needed experience.

The Catalan born midfield maestro had been previously linked to both Chelsea and Manchester City last season, only for him to snub a move in favour of signing a new deal with his boyhood club, whom he has been on the books with since the age of nine.

Vazquez scored his first senior goal for Barcelona against Rubin Kazan in a Champions League game earlier this season but has since found appearances hard to come by.


With his career seemingly stalling, newly appointed Rovers manager Steve Kean has offered him a lifeline, with a view to a permanent move to Ewood Park.

And with a considerable transfer kitty available since the club’s recent multi-million pound takeover, if the initial loan spell is successful, Blackburn will be given first option on securing Vazquez to a long-term deal in the summer.

Blackburn have also been linked in the Spanish press to a number of Barcelona fringe players, including Oriol Romeu and Ruben Rochina, but Vazquez is the only offer with any substance so far.
