Barcelona are willing to use Giovani dos Santos in a swap for Chelsea winger Florent Malouda.

DiarioSport says Chelsea are ready to do business for £14 million for France international Malouda and Barca hope to drive down the cash component by including Dos Santos in their offer.

The young Mexico international is rated highly by Blues No2 Henk ten Cate, who followed Dos Santos' progress closely while working at the Nou Camp.
