According to reports in Spain, Barcelona are very interested in signing RB Leipzig’s duo Dayot Upamecano and Timo Werner.

Mundo Deportivo are reporting that Fernandez has analysed from close the duo’s display.
It is said that Barca are considering the pair as long-term replacements for Gerard Pique and Luis Suarez, who are now in the 30’s.
Upamecano, 19, is considered as a key figure by Leipzig having made 15 appearances for the club, while Werner is also wanted by Real Madrid
Barca are also monitoring Inter’s Milan Skrinar and Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly, while the top target remains Philippe Coutinho. //Actuantes//
