Belgium coach Roberto Martinez is emerging as a target for Barcelona president Joan Laporta.
Laporta is preparing to fire coach Ronald Koeman.
Koeman is fighting to keep his job after last night's disappointing 1-1 draw with Granada at the Nou Camp.
Sport says featuring high in Laporta's thoughts is Martinez as a replacement.
The Catalan's contract with Belgium runs to June and Laporta would be prepared to buy him out of his deal to bring the former Everton manager to the Nou Camp.
