Barcelona 'would prefer to sign Ziyech than Werner but are in transfer talks with Chelsea over both stars'
BARCELONA remain in talks with Chelsea over the potential transfers of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner – but allegedly have a preferred choice.
The Catalans are keen on bolstering their attacking options once the January window re-opens.
And Spanish publication SPORT have claimed they are keen to add both of the Blues forwards to their ranks.
Each individual is also said to be open to leaving Stamford Bridge for the Nou Camp.
However, Barcelona would prefer to bring in Ziyech next month should they only be able to complete one deal.
The Morocco ace only joined Chelsea from Ajax in the summer of 2020, along with Werner,but he is struggling for regular action under boss Thomas Tuchel.
The 28-year-old has been restricted to just 13 appearances this campaign and has only found the net twice.
Werner has also struggled to adapt to life at Stamford Bridge since his own big-money arrival from RB Leipzig.

And he featured 12 times so far this season and produced four goals, but Chelsea could be tempted to offload him if they can get their money back.
New Barcelona manager Xavi’s arrival in the dug-out has also led to a number of other attacking talents being linked with a transfer to the LaLiga side.
Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling is another Premier League ace that is believed to be a top target for them.
