Newcastle United are braced to received a bid for Jose Enrique from La Liga champions Barcelona.
The Catalan side have given up hope of signing Jose Angel from Sporting Gijon and will turn their attention to The Toon's star man.
But with Liverpool also interested, Newcastle will have a battle on their hands to keep Enrique.
Alan Pardew is expected to lose Enrique this season after a superb year at full-back for Newcastle, following the Magpies' promotion from the Championship.
To potentially replace Enrique, Newcastle may consider Paul Konchesky.
