Reports in Spain claim Barcelona have identified three important Chelsea players to sign next summer.

According to Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona have identified Chelsea trio Andreas Christensen, Cesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger as transfer targets for next summer.

Christensen, Azpilicueta and Rudiger’s contracts all expire next summer and Barcelona are hoping to sign them as free agents.

Barcelona might have to take off Christensen from that list as Fabrizio Romano has claimed the Denmark international is close to signing a new Chelsea contract.

Rudiger’s Chelsea future is uncertain as the German centre-back is holding out for a salary that the Blues are unwilling to pay at the moment.

Despite Azpilicueta’s contract expiring at the end of the season, it seems the Blues are yet to enter contract negotiations with our captain.
