Benfica striker Oscar Cardozo would be interested in a move to Barcelona, according to the player’s agent.

The 46-cap Paraguayan international was heavily linked with a move to the Premier League in the summer transfer window, with Everton one of the teams linked with a move for the player.

Pedro Aldave has a ‘hypothesis’ over a possible move to the Blaugrana however, with the agent talking up the possibility of his client moving to the Nou Camp next summer.

"Barca do not have a number nine and is, therefore, looking to sign such a player when the current championship ends. It is a hypothesis," Aldave told Radio 780 AM.

Gerardo Martino made a significant change in attack this summer, with David Villa leaving and Neymar drafted in. However, the La Liga champions do lack a traditional centre forward, and Aldave clearly believes his client could be the man for Barcelona.

If the Spanish giants do wish to pursue the 30-year-old, then Everton would become outsiders to land the player.

Roberto Martinez brought Romelu Lukaku to Goodison Park on loan at the end of the summer window, and the Belgian forward has found form immediately for the Toffees this term.

However, he'll return to his parent club at the end of the season, and the Everton boss will now have to look elsewhere if he did have hopes of bringing Cardozo to Merseyside.
