FC Barcelona Line Up Shock Move For Premier League Star?

Spanish giants FC Barcelona are reportedly lining up a £15 million (R250 million) offer for a Portugal international playing in the Premier League.

Reports: Arsenal To Consider R653m bid For Man Utd Starlet

According to The Sun, the La Liga outfit are interested in signing Southampton right back Cedric Soares.

The Blaugrana have been chasing Arsenal's Hector Bellerin since last season, but it looks like they may lose out on the player once again.

Soares, who is at the 2017 Confederations Cup with the Portuguese national team, has apparently caught the attention of the Catalan club in recent weeks, and is said to be their new main defensive target.

Serie A giants Juventus are also believed to be interested in the 25-year-old as they are looking for a replacement for Dani Alves, who is expected to join Manchester City in the coming weeks.

The Saints know they will have a hard time trying to keep the Portugal star at their club for the next campaign, but are hoping new manager Mauricio Pellegrino will be able to persuade him to stay.

The defender joined the English club from Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon for a fee of £6.5 million (R108.5 million) in 2015.

Soares made 34 appearances for Southampton last season, assisting three goals in all competitions.
