Barcelona are eyeing Hoffenhein defender Melayro Bogarde.

Bogarde is the nephew of former Barcelona player Winston Bogarde and is a defender like his uncle.

Tied to TSG until June, Bogarde is fielding interest from across Europe.

Sky Italia's Gianluca di Marzio reports Barca and AC Milan are both preparing approaches to the player's camp.

Bogarde in the past has shut down talk of interest from Manchester City, explaining: "I don't want to go to a club to be loaned to other teams for years."
