Barcelona are reportedly interested in signing Boca Juniors defender Ramos Mingo.
The 17-year-old was involved in Boca's pre-season tour ahead of the current campaign but has not yet made his professional debut for the club due to a contract stand-off.
According to AS, the Argentine outfit have placed a professional deal on the table for the centre-back, although it remains unsigned as the youngster considers his future.
The report claims that Barca's head of youth development Jose Maria Bakero has been in contact with Mingo's agent with a view to signing him before he pens a professional deal at La Bombonera.
Barca will be attempting to make it eight straight wins in all competitions when they travel to Levante in Spain's top flight on Saturday afternoon.
