After failing to sign Milan’s Thiago Silva, Barcelona have turned their attention to Arsenal’s centre back Thomas Vermaelen.
Tito Vilanova is the new man in charge at Now Camp since Pep left, his first job is to strengthen the defence.
His first choice was Silva, but they were only willing to spend up to £30m and Milan have already rejected a whopping £32.5m bid from French club PSG.
Now it’s time to look at other options, one possibly was thought to be Chelsea”s David Luiz but the man at the top of the shopping list is thought to be the Belgian centre back.
As well as being able to play at the black, he can play left back or in Midfield.
Whilst Thomas has stated he wants to stay with the club, it will be interesting to see if he can resist the lure of Barcelona.
