Barcelona have been offered the chance to sign Ajaccio goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, who has also attracted alleged transfer interest from Arsenal and Liverpool.

TalkSPORT reports how the 28-year-old stopper will be available on a free transfer this summer, having entered the final month of his contract at Stade Francois Coty.

Ochoa's agent is currently touting his client's services to a host of top European clubs, with Camp Nou identified as a potential destination for the Mexico international.

Luis Enrique has already added Marc-Andre ter Stegen to his recently inherited first-team ranks ahead of the 2014/15 campaign, as he looks to establish a long-term heir for veteran custodian Victor Valdes.

The Mexican could provide strong competition for the number one spot at Barcelona next season, judging by his impressive performances in France over the past three years.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has also been mooted as an admirer of Ochoa, as he continues his search for a replacement for the recently departed Lukasz Fabianski, who left the Emirates upon the expiry of his contract to sign a four-year deal with Premier League rivals Swansea.

The Poland international moves to the Liberty Stadium as a possible replacement for Dutch goalkeeper Michel Vorm who - like Ochoa - has been linked with a possible switch to Anfield, as Brendan Rodgers looks to strengthen his squad in preparation for Liverpool's return to the Champions League next season.

Ochoa is currently focused on preparations for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil this summer, but will hope to have a new club lined up by the start of pre-season.
