Diario Sport are reporting that Barca are in talks for the youngster and seem pretty confident Georgiev will arrive at the Camp Nou for next season.

The youngster would play for Barcelona B initially and would join the likes of Arnau Comas, Mika Mármol, Ramos Mingo and Igor Gomes in the squad.

Georgiev has already played for the first team at Slavia Sofia and Sport describe him as being a right-footer who is good in the air and in possession of the ball.
