Xavi ‘identifies two defensive targets for Barcelona’

Xavi ‘identifies two defensive targets for Barcelona’

Barcelona manager Xavi has reportedly identified two ideal defensive signings for the Blaugrana in 2022.

The Catalan giants – despite their financial difficulties – are on the verge of completing a big-money deal for Manchester City attacker Ferran Torres.

However, Xavi is facing uncertainty surrounding a couple of his defensive names, with right-back Sergino Dest being strongly linked with an exit next year.

According to Sport, Barca are looking to move for current Ajax right-back Noussair Mazraoui as a possible replacement for Dest, with contact already being made with agent Mino Raiola.

On the opposite side of defence, the report adds that Valencia’s Jose Gaya is also a target, with Xavi starting to plan for life without Jordi Alba.

Dest is believed to be on the radar of Arsenal, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Manchester City amid links with a move elsewhere.
