Barcelona are said to be interested in RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol, who has also been linked with Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur..
Chelsea are still interested in signing the Leipzig centre-back despite having a bid in the region of £77 million rejected in the summer.
Tottenham Hotspur are also considering a move, but the two Premier League clubs will now face competition from Barcelona..
The Catalan giants have identified Gvardiol as a replacement for Gerard Pique, who recently retired from professional football, according to Team Talk.
According to the report, Barcelona will keep an eye on Gvardiol’s progress at the World Cup, where he will represent 2018 runners-up Croatia..
While Barcelona’s financial problems may play a role in a potential transfer, the La Liga clubs are eager to start talks next year, though it is unclear whether they will do so in the January or summer transfer windows.
The 21-year-old is currently under contract with Leipzig until 2027, and he has made 65 appearances for the club, contributing three goals and four assists..
