Barcelona are moving for Boca Juniors defender Tiago Casasola.

Barca have decided against signing permanently Boca striker Sergio Araujo, who spent last season on-loan at the Nou Camp.

But they do want to open talks with Boca over a deal for Casasola, with the view to adding the 17 year-old stopper initially to their Barca B squad.

"Hopefully I can move to Barcelona," said the centre-half, "it would be an incredible leap in my career."
