La Liga champions Barcelona are hot on the trail of Nice wonderkid Malang Sarr, El Mundo Deportivo has suggested.
It is no secret that the Catalans plan to rejuvenate their back line and they have so far shown interest in Joris Gnagnon and Issa Diop.
However, it appears that Nice starlet Malang Sarr has also caught the eye of Barcelona sporting director Robert Fernandez following the bright start to his career at Allianz Riviera.
The 17-year-old impressed to nail down a regular starting berth in his maiden season in the top flight, playing across the back four without any problems.
Sarr has helped Nice climb to the top of the Ligue 1 standings and if his rich vein of form continues, more top sides will join the race for his services.
The talented centre-back has started each of the 20 league games this season, scoring one goal in the process, and he only once failed to complete full ninety minutes.
