Barcelona reportedly identify Swansea City keeper Michel Vorm as their preferred replacement for Victor Valdes, who is likely to leave Camp Nou this summer.

Barcelona plan to make Michel Vorm their first-choice goalkeeper next season and will launch a bid for the Swansea City star in the summer, according to a report.

Current Barca number one, Victor Valdes, has yet to agree a new deal with the club and is likely to leave in the summer, with Arsenal and Liverpool thought to be potential destinations.

Valdes is contracted to the Catalan outfit until 2014, but it is thought that Barca will sell him at the end of the season rather than allow him to leave on a free transfer.

Manchester United's David de Gea has been mooted as a long-term successor, but the Daily Star understands that Vorm is a target of the Camp Nou coaching staff.

Dutch international Vorm joined Swansea from FC Utrecht in 2011 for £1.5m.
