Barca Wants Azpilicueta, Alonso



Magic performing FC Barcelona are leaving no stone unturned in their bid to raid Chelsea of three midfielders.
Reports in Spanish media claimed that Barca scouts were in London on Monday to watch the players in their win over West Ham.
Marca claim that the Spanish champions are keeping a close eye on Cesar Azpilicueta, Marcos Alonso and Nemanja Matic ahead of the summer transfer window.
Azpilicueta and Alonso both impressed in the 2-1 victory at the London Stadium, but Matic only came on as a second-half substitute with 25 minutes remaining.
Barcelona are looking to bolster their options on the right side of their defence having failed to find a suitable replacement since Dani Alves’ departure to Juventus last summer.
The report also states that Hector Bellerin remains on the radar, although a deal for the Arsenal right-back may not be financially possible.
Joao Cancelo is also on Barcelona’s shortlist despite Valencia’s poor campaign.
