The link comes four days after Barrios told Sky Sport: “It’s pleasing to know Italian clubs are interested in me. I have always been fascinated by Serie A, but La Liga and the Premier League are also leagues I would like to play in one day.”
The Paraguayan forward has scored 11 goals in 23 Bundesliga matches for Dortmund this year, and has played a considerable role in his team’s phenomenal campaign. With 10 matches left to be played, Dortmund have a 12-point lead over Bayer Leverkusen.
Chelsea may find it difficult to prise Barrios away from Dortmund, however.
Barrios’ current deal at the Westfalenstadion is set to expire in 2014.
