Pau Torres has attracted the interest of Barcelona

Marca has reported that Barcelona are interested in potentially signing Villarreal’s Pau Torres.

It appears that Chelsea are winning the race to sign Jules Koundé from Sevilla after submitting a bid of €64.7 million.

The Catalan outfit are still in the market looking for a new centre-back to bolster their backline.

Pau Torres was a key player in the Villarreal side that managed to reach the Champions League semi-final last season, which has attracted the attention of some of the best teams in Europe.

He had been previously linked with a move to Manchester United but is unlikely to move to Old Trafford after the Premier League club signed left-sided centre-back Lisandro Martínez from Ajax.

Barcelona coach Xavi is a big fan of the Spanish defender, who may be interested in moving to a club that will guarantee him Champions League football.

Since the start of the 2019/20 season, the Spanish defender has cemented himself as one of the best centre-backs in La Liga, in addition to becoming a regular in the Spanish national team.
