According to Marca via Daily Mail, Barcelona boss Xavi is keen on signing Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta on a free transfer.

Azpilicueta’s Chelsea contract runs out at the end of the season and Xavi wants the Spanish defender to strengthen his squad.

Xavi is reportedly unimpressed with his right-back options Sergino Dest and Sergi Roberto and both players have barely played since Xavi became Barcelona boss.

Apzilicueta – who played international football with Xaxi for Spain, would represent a signing who could play at right-back, right centre-back and right wing-back, as the Barcelona boss plots his first transfer moves at the Camp Nou.
