Barcelona linked with a move for Lucas Hernandez
Barcelona are reportedly keeping a close eye on many centre-backs across the Europe.
If a report from Tribalfootball is to be believed, Barcelona are linked with a move for Bayern Munich centre-back Lucas Hernandez.
The 26-year-old has been at the Bundesliga club for three seasons, having joined the side from Atlético Madrid in 2019. He has two years left on his current contract which expires in 2024.
This season, Hernandez has provided 2 assists in 32 appearances for Bayern.
The 26-year-old is considered to be one of the best centre-backs in France. He has earned 31 senior caps for the France national team but is yet to open his goal-scoring account for his nation.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Barcelona.
Barcelona are looking to sign a centre-back and have identified the 26-year-old as potential transfer target.
Xavi is a firm fan of Bayern Munich centre-back and Barcelona could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.
The Catalans are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
The former Atlético Madrid man heavily relies on his ability to read the game. It is coupled with his sensible tackling and an excellent sense of positioning, allowing him to repel most of the danger in the defensive third.
According to the report, “Bayern Munich defender Lucas Hernandez is interesting Barcelona. The former Atletico Madrid stopper counts on Barca coach Xavi as among his admirers. Sport says Lucas’ situation is being monitored by the Catalans on recommendation of Xavi. However, any move will be dependent on Bayern’s asking price, with Barca still working through their financial problems.”
