Mundo Deportivo suggests the Catalan club are keen to add to their squad at the end of the season and are thought to be monitoring several players around Europe, including the likes of Jordi Alba, Shinji Kagawa and Robin van Persie, whose contracts are set to expire next summer, as the La Liga outfit have limited funds to spend.
Walcott has been courted by Barca in the past and the Catalans could look to rekindle their interest in the England winger, who has yet to sign a new deal at Arsenal, putting Arsene Wenger and the north London club in quite a predicament. If Walcott fails to agree terms this summer, then the Gunners will have to decide whether to sell or allow the 23-year-old to leave for nothing next summer.
However, Wenger remains optimistic that the speedy winger will stay at Arsenal beyond his existing deal, but the player may just be tempted by the lure of other top clubs, including the world’s best team Barcelona.
Walcott has nine goals and assists for the Gunners this season in 43 appearances.
