Barcelona are in talks with Boca Juniors this week for Argie sensation Sergio Araujo.

El Mundo Deportivo says Barca want to set up an initial 12-month loan arrangement with the view to signing Araujo permanently for €10 million.

The 19 year-old would spend the season alternating between the B team and Pep Guardiola's squad in order for management to make a definitive ruling on his prospects.

While rated highly, Araujo boasts only ten senior appearances for Boca. He is represented by Eduardo Gamarnik, a former agent of Barca defender Gabi Milito.
