Deco has dropped his strongest hint yet that Vitor Roque will arrive at Barcelona in the January transfer window.

It’s been reported that Barca will go for the Brazilian and have space on the wage bill after Gavi’s season-ending injury.

Deco was asked about Vitor Roque again at Rayo and offered up the following response.

“I think it is going that way, that we are going to bet on him,” he said.

“The truth is that we are coordinated (with Xavi). We always talk. There is no one like Gavi on the market, especially in January.

“Surely, Vitor is the possibility where we are going to be more…it is not decided, but we are going down that path.”

Barcelona certainly look like they need something to get them going. The team struggled in attack yet again on Saturday and needed an own goal to snatch a point.
