Barcelona interested in Cengiz Under

Today’s rumors begin with news that Barcelona are planning on riling Roma even further, as they’ve been to scout talented young winger Cengiz Under.

Sport have been looking at Sky Sports and reckon that Ariedo Braida took a trip to Italy where he watched Under in action for Roma against Fiorentina.

Apparently it wasn’t Under’s finest match, but if Barcelona do want him they reckon he can be snapped up for €27 million.

David Luiz move plotted

Over at the Sunday Express, the word is that Barcelona’s defensive problems have led them to consider a January move for, erm, David Luiz.

The Brazilian is out of contract at Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, so the Blues could consider selling him on this winter.

Luiz is enjoying a good season under Maurizio Sarri, but Chelsea tend to only offer players over 30 one-year contact extensions, which Luiz will reject.

Willian to Barca, Malcom to Chelsea?

Sticking with Chelsea and those Willian rumors are back with a vengeance. According to La Sexta’s Jugones programme, Willian’s agents have met with Barca to talk about a price.

The Brazilian would cost between €50 and €80m, but they could get him for less if they’re willing to include Malcom in the deal.

Willian has repeatedly said he’s happy at Chelsea this season. In fact he spoke about his love for the club recently and claimed “everthing is perfect.”

Barca monitoring Kimmich

And finally today we end with news that Barcelona want to add another right-back to the squad and rather like the look of Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich.

Mundo Deportivo reckon that the 23-year-old would be perfect for the Spanish champions, and his versatility would be a big plus too.

However, it’s not quite as simple as all that. He’s contracted to Bayern until 2023, and he’d likely cost more than €50 million.
