Barcelona linked with AS Roma centre-back Roger Ibanez

Barcelona are interested in signing Roger Ibanez from AS Roma in the summer transfer window, according to Fichajes. The report has claimed that Brazilian centre-back Ibanez is among the defenders that La Liga giants Barcelona are following in case they fail to secure the services of Jules Kounde from Spanish rivals Sevilla in the summer transfer window.

Former La Liga and UEFA Champions League winners Barcelona are keen on signing Kounde this summer, but they are facing stiff competition from Chelsea. The Blues’ offer to Sevilla and to the player himself is superior to that from Barcelona, who are now looking at alternatives in case they are unable to bring the France international centre-back to Camp Nou this summer.

Ibanez spent the 2020-21 campaign on loan at AS Roma from Atalanta before making the move permanent in the summer of 2021. The 23-year-old Brazilian made 32 starts and two substitute appearances in Serie A last season, scoring three goals in the process.
