Report: FC Barcelona Interested in Lukasz Piszczek

Lars Baron

FC Barcelona's final signing of the season is not Thomas Vermaelen. There is one more guy on the way.

And that guy could be Borussia Dortmund's Lukasz Piszczek, sources told Barça Blaugranes. Mundo Deportivo also reported the rumor. The Polish would be the alternative to Juan Cuadrado, who is too expensive for Barcelona, as Fiorentina wants €50 million for the signing of the Colombia winger. Dortmund's asking price for Piszczek is lower, and the Blaugrana could land the right-back for a fee of €32 million, according to sources.

The 29-year-old plays for Borussia since 2010, and is a Poland international. Piszczek is a solid defender and a good attacker, and gives his team a strong support in the right side. He is also a good passer, which would fit Barcelona's tiki-taka system.

This is only a rumor, for now. But Piszczek is a strong, reliable guy to play for Barça, Yes, Dani Alves is staying. But it's hard to expect him to extend his contract. Barcelona is now facing a transfer ban for the next window, and signing the Polish will keep the team with two right-backs when Dani leaves.

What do you think of this, Barça fans? Is Piszczek a good alternative to Cuadrado? Is it a good idea to pursue him?
