Barcelona are interested in signing Josko Gvardiol from RB Leipzig in the summer transfer window, according to Fichajes. The report has claimed that Croatia international centre-back Gvardiol 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.
Gvardiol can also operate as a left-back and is considered as one of the best young defenders in Europe. The 20-year-old made 28 starts and one substitute appearance in the Bundesliga last season, scoring two goals and providing two assists in the process. The youngster also played six times in the Europa League last season.
