BARCELONA are hoping to seal a deadline day swoop for Anthony Elanga.
The La Liga giants are looking to bring in reinforcements before the transfer window shuts at 11pm this evening.
And according to reports, they've identified Manchester United winger Elanga as an option to bolster the attacking options for the remainder of the season.
That's according to ESPN, who claim the Catalans are interested in taking the Swede on loan.
Barcelona, however, could face stiff competition to land the 20-year-old today.
United are said to have received a staggering TEN loan offers for Elanga's services.

“The coaching staff are helping me day in, day out, and I feel they will play a huge part in what I will become in the second half of the season.”
When asked about United's recent upturn in form, he said: “I feel like consistency in what we do.
“Mentally preparing for games, the day before games, the way we train.
"I feel like everyone's properly focused and buying into what the manager wants us to do and how he wants us to play and how he wants us to be on the pitch as a team: confident, on the front foot.
“I feel like we're all buying into it. We're starting [to do this] – we won't get it overnight.
"It's something that takes time but I feel like we've done really well so far.
“Like I say, it's now about that consistency and keeping it up and hopefully we keep it going for the rest of the season.”
United will be back in action on Wednesday night, welcoming Nottingham Forest to Old Trafford for the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final tie. They lead 3-0 from the first leg.
