Prince-Boateng has been plying his trade in Serie A with minnows Sassuolo since last summer, with the Italian club the 11th in his long and varied career so far.
At 31, Prince-Boateng is unquestionably past his best but Sky Sports are reporting that Barca have been looking to bolster their attacking options since allowing Munir El Haddadi to join Sevilla, and the Ghana international apparently fits their bill.
A minimal fee of £1.75 million has been mentioned, with Prince-Boateng expected to act as a back-up to Luis Suarez – much to the surprise of fans everywhere:
