The 30-year-old, who left Real Sociedad for LAFC in 2017, has been in scintillating form for the MLS club all year, contributing 38 goals and 12 assists in 36 appearances for the club.

Dos Santos, who played for Barcelona between 2009 and 2014, has now claimed that the Blaugrana have reignited their interest in Vela, stating that they have tabled an offer that could see his compatriot move to the Catalan giants in January.

Speaking to Colombian Radio station W Radio, he said via ESPN,

"It's true that he has that offer on the table and I honestly don't know what he is going to do.
"He is very happy in Los Angeles, with his team. It's a unique opportunity the fact that Barcelona wants him, it's the best team in the world. As a Mexican, I hope that it can happen for him."

Dos Santos added,

"He's had a spectacular season. He is on holiday, I haven't spoken to him because I don't want to bother him. Whatever is good for him, I'll be happy."

Barcelona are keen on bolstering their attacking options in the winter transfer window, especially as Ousmane Dembele has been on the sidelines due to a recurring injury.
