Barcelona have denied interest in Juventus full-back Mattia De Sciglio, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Reports in Italy have claimed Barca have been in touch with the 27-year-old who has become surplus to requirements in Turin under Maurizo Sarri.

De Sciglio is said to be available for around €10 million, but MD reckon Barca aren’t interested at the moment.

Barcelona were linked with De Sciglio previously during negotiations with Juventus for the swap of Arthur and Miralem Pjanic.

The report reckons the only way Barca might start thinking about De Sciglio would be if either Junior Firpo or Nelson Semedo were to leave.

Both full-backs have been linked with a summer exit, although those rumors have gone a little quiet recently.
