Bojan hints at possible Barcelona exit

Bojan has given Liverpool a potential boost in the transfer market, with the striker having appeared to hint at a possible exit from Barcelona.

23-year-old Bojan - a one-cap Spain international who came through the ranks in La Liga as a product of Barcelona's world-famous 'La Masia' academy - was once highly-regarded at the Camp Nou, but his once lofty status has plummeted in recent years.

Having initially been sold to Serie A outfit Roma in 2011 and subsequently loaned to AC Milan, Bojan returned to Barcelona two years later but failed to win back a regular place in the starting XI.

He was loaned to Eredivisie giants Ajax for the entirety of the 2013/14 season, where he notched just four goals in 24 domestic games.

Despite Bojan's rather rapid fall from grace, Liverpool are said to be interested in a summer switch for the player as they look to recruit talent ahead of an important 2014/15 campaign at Anfield.

"I don’t have any doubts that I could play for Barca but I am not sure if it would be the best for me at this time," Bojan was quoted by The Daily Star.

However, while Bojan appears to have cast doubt upon his future at Barcelona, he was also keen to emphasise that he is not categorically dismissing anything when it comes to his future. 

"It is a key decision in my career and I want to value all possible options: Barcelona, Ajax or other offers that may arrive. I do not want to rule out anything."

Bojan's comments that he believes he can play for Barcelona may suggest that he could be open to another loan move, although it is unclear if the club would be willing to commit to that given that there is expected to be several changes in player personnel in the coming months.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has a lot of experience working with young players from his time as a youth coach with Reading and across the Premier League with Chelsea.

However, with Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge - a frightening combination who so nearly fired the club to title glory last season - currently occupying the starting strike roles on Merseyside, it seems likely that Bojan would have to be content with a place on the substitutes bench if he were to join Liverpool.
