The Catalan giants are expected to bolster their backline before the start of the next season, with Clement Lenglet and Samuel Umtiti reportedly expected to leave.

As a result, manager Ronald Koeman is said to have identified City defender Aymeric Laporte as a potential target, which would see him become the third player signed from the Citizens in the off-season.

It is believed the Blaugrana cannot afford to buy the Spain international due to their financial troubles, with Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia arriving on free transfers.

However, Spanish outlet Sport has reported that the LaLiga outfit is willing to include versatile star Sergi Roberto as part of the deal in an effort to get the asking price down.

Laporte, meanwhile, was seen an integral part of the Citizens side before being sidelined twice due to injury in the 2019/20 campaign, and played second fiddle to Ruben Dias and John Stones this past season.

"It's a very different challenge because I never played less than this year. For me it's very different, that is difficult to accept," the Spanish defender said, as per Manchester Evening News.
