Barcelona are close to completing the loan signing of Sassuolo forward Kevin-Prince Boateng, according to transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio.
The 31-year-old joined the Italian side from Eintracht Frankfurt this summer and has scored five goals in 15 appearances for the club.
Barca are in need of attacking reinforcements following Munir El Haddadi’s departure to Sevilla earlier this month and have been linked to a number of strikers including Alvaro Morata, Fernando Llorente and Carlos Vela.
However, the latest report suggests it will be the Ghanaian international who they will turn to in order to bolster their forward options.
Boateng spent the 2016/17 campaign in La Liga, netting 10 goals in 25 starts for Las Palmas.
