Barcelona Get New Target For Their Defense As PSG Is Set To Challenge Them For Napoli Defender

Written By Onyeka Daniel

Barcelona will do anything to avoid the scenario that played out this season, that saw them fall off in the title race at the early stage of the season and for that, they’re keen to strengthen their defense.

More Details

For the left-back position, they only have Jordi Alba, while fielding some players out of position when he’s not available and the club are keen to rectify that with a number of targets drawn up already.


The club have been linked with the likes of Javi Galan, Alex Grimaldo and even recently, Chelsea defender, Marcos Alonso but a new name has now emerged with reports that Borussia Dortmund defender, Raphael Guerreiro has been offered to the Blaugrana by his agent.

The 28-year-old is set to enter the final year of his contract with the Black and Yellows this summer and is keen on taking up a new challenge. To that end, a move away from the Signal Iduna Park could be on the cards in the coming weeks, with Barça being given the chance to sign him.

The Blaugrana are no strangers to Guerreiro, having tried to sign him back in 2016 as a replacement for Adriano Correia. However, the Portuguese international opted to join Dortmund in search of more regular playing time.

Rather than lose him for free, the German side are open to selling him for a fee and €10 million should be enough to sign the player who is well known for his attacking plays as he already has five goals and four assists for his club this season, but he’s also prone to injury too.

As of now, it is still unclear whether Barcelona intend to look in his direction as they’re said to be looking at signing a player who has experience playing in the Spanish League and can play second fiddle to Jordi Alba.


Barcelona could face a challenge in their bid to sign Napoli defender, Kalidou Koulibaly as French giants, PSG are said to be interested in signing the Senegalese too.

The Parisians have suffered some defensive lapses this season, which contributed immensely to their poor form in Europe. With Spanish defender, Sergio Ramos spending more time on the treatment table than on the pitch.

The club’s hierarchy are looking at the possibility of signing a couple of defenders and Koulibaly, who is said to be ready to leave Napoli is one of their top targets and they can offer him a better wage than a financially handicapped Barcelona.
