Brazilian defender Michel Macedo has been reportedly shortlisted by Barcelona to replace injured right-back Aleix Vidal.

According to the ESPN Brazil news outlet, Barcelona coach Luis Enrique is keen to draft a player into Barcelona's squad to fill the void left by Vidal. Among those at the top of his wish-list is Macedo, who has impressed with Las Palmas this season after joining the Canary Islands club from Almeria.

Others being considered are Valencia's Joao Cancelo, Celta Vigo's Jonny Castro and Eibar's Ander Capa, the outlet said.

Vidal was ruled out for at least the next five months after dislocating his right ankle in Barcelona's 6-0 victory at Alaves in La Liga on Saturday
