Spanish La Liga champion Barcelona are keeping close tabs on Darijo Srna and Joao Cancelo, AS can reveal.
The Catalans plan to recruit a new right-sided defender in January considering that Aleix Vidal is almost certain to leave the club.
And while Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin remains their number one target, Barcelona could face a tough task trying to persuade the Gunners to sell their prized asset, especially if they can sustain a Premier League title challenge.
As a result, the Catalans could turn to one of Darijo Srna or Joao Cancelo, two very different targets.
While the Croatian defender has got a wealth of experience of playing at the highest level and may become available on a free transfer, the Portuguese full-back has only recently arrived at the big stage, and is likely to command a substantial transfer fee if his employers Valencia decide to cash in on his services.
