After 391 appearances for the Catalan giants, replacing the Brazilian was always going to be a tough task, and it has proven to be exactly that so far.
Sergi Roberto played out of position to cover at right-back for the most part of last season, as well as Aleix Vidal, who unfortunately suffered an injury that kept him out of action for several months.
According to the Portuguese daily, the Catalan club are looking to lure Benfica and Portugal international Nelson Semedo to Spain, but, Marca claim he is one of five right-backs on their radar.
Monaco defender Djibril Sidibe is also reportedly being watched by the club, as well Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin, Valencia’s Joao Cancelo and Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich.
All of the aforementioned players are fairly youthful full-backs, while they are also full internationals.
