Spanish giants Barcelona has contacted English club Tottenham Hotspurs over a potential swap deal for England International Danny Rose.
But the Catalan giants have instead turned their attention to targets in the Bundesliga.
According to Sport in Spain, Barca are desperate to bring in a left-back this summer and were in contact with the Spurs man.
They want to provide added competition for Jordi Alba, who has carried the burden of that position almost single-handedly since replacing Eric Abidal in 2012.
Rose, 29, is Spurs’ longest-serving player but is expected to leave the club before the transfer window closes.
Paris Saint-Germain are also thought to be interested in the England international, who is valued at around £20m.
He is also a target for Schalke while a shock romantic return to Leeds could be on the cards.
