The young centre-back has made it clear he wants to go back to the Catalan club.
And Barca's sporting director, Ramon Planes, has confirmed the club want to sign their former academy player.
"It's true that we are looking for someone to help us in defence," said Ramon Planes to reporters.
"The club's idea is to build a young side alongside players who have given a lot to the club. Eric has that profile."
If not the Catalan giants will wait until next season and sign Garcia on a free transfer.
