Barcelona are ready to muscle in on the race for Arsenal and Liverpool target Raphael Guerreiro.
Both Premier League sides are tracking the talented Lorient left-back and the French club are bracing themselves for summer offers.
Guerreiro is out of contract this time next year so Lorient may be forced to sell or risk losing him as a free agent – and there are plenty of clubs planning an approach.
Roma and Borussia Dortmund are understood to be keeping tabs on his situation but now, according to sources in Spain, the Portugal international is attracting the interest of Barca.
Manager Luis Enrique is expected to strengthen his defence this summer with Lyon’s Samuel Umtiti also an option.
However, it has been suggested that he may be about to turn his attention to Guerreiro.
