The Catalan giants are on the lookout for defensive reinforcements this summer as Dani Alves is set to join Juventus, Marc Bartra has already departed for Borussia Dortmund and Martin Montoya could be on the move as well after spending the second half of last season on loan at Real Betis.

Barca had been heavily linked with Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin but a deal for the Gunners full-back is looking increasingly unlikely, and the Daily Telegraph say they have now set their sights on Azpilicueta to replace Alves at right-back.

The 26-year-old, who is under contract until 2019, is currently with the Spain squad for Euro 2016 and any transfer is unlikely to happen until after the tournament in France is over.
