According to reports, Barcelona have fleshed out several new targets as they look to make centre-back reinforcements. The club is keeping close tabs on the likes of Inter’s Milan Skriniar, 23, RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano, 19, and Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly, 27.
The most expensive of the lot is the Napoli man Koulibaly. He is said to be valued at a whooping €130 million ($150m/£113m).
Barcelona are also looking to lure 21-year-old Athletic Bilbao goalie, Unai Nunez.
Barcelona first choice centre-back Pique is beginning to show signs of wear and tear, as he is not the solid rock he once was. As such the club are looking to find a replacement as soon as possible.
Barcelona sit second in the La Liga behind surprise league leaders Sevilla.
