Barcelona are considering a relocation for Chelsea transfer target Josko Gvardiol with the Catalan side in the market for a brand-new centre-back following Gerard Pique’s retirement.

Pique’s departure from the Camp Nou fold has actually required Barca to look for supports to strengthen their backline and RB Leipzig’s Josko Gvardiol is stated to have actually appeared on their radar ahead of the January window.

According to a report by Spanish publication SPORT (by means of The Daily Express), it is declared that just recently designated Chelsea head coach Graham Potter, who prepares to contribute to his protective alternatives, might now deal with competitors for the finalizing of Gvardiol.

Another face-off on the transfer front in between Chelsea and Barcelona would produce a repeat of last summertime when the 2 clubs took on for Raphinha and Jules Kounde with both transfers pirated by the La Liga giants.

Gvardiol has actually been related to a relocate to Stamford Bridge in the current past, with the Croatian viewed as among the primary names on Potter’s wishlist to strengthen his ranks after a frustrating start to the project.
