Spanish daily AS has suggested that Barcelona are set to launch a fresh assault on Paris Saint-Germain captain Thiago Silva.
It is no secret the Catalans are desperate to sign a world-class centre-back in the summer transfer window and it would appear as though the Brazilian is at the top of their hit-list.
Paris Saint-Germain are not interested in selling their prized asset, but Barcelona officials believe the player’s desire to play for the Camp Nou outfit will ultimately prevail.
Tito Vilanova is a keen admirer of the 28-year-old and he is prepared to pull all the stops to lure the player to Camp Nou in the summer.
Thiago Silva has established himself as one of world’s top central defenders, but he only joined the Saints last summer from AC Milan.
The Brazil international has clocked up 34 competitive appearances for the club this season and scored three goals in the process.
