Barcelona move to trump Chelsea for Ballou Tabla this month

Barcelona are eyeing Canadian whizkid Ballou Tabla.

Talks have already opened between Barca and Montreal Impact about signing Tabla for their B team. Negotiations kicked off before Christmas.

At 18, Tabla could initially sign for the Barca youth team this month ahead of being promoted to Gerard Lopez's B squad.

Chelsea are also interested in the attacker - who was recommended to the Blues by Didier Drogba.

However, Barca are regarded as favourites to land Tabla in the coming days.
