Juan Foyth’s agent Claudio Curti has been spotted at Barcelona on Tuesday amid speculation the Catalans could move for the Villarreal defender.

Mundo Deportivo are reporting that Curti had a meeting with sporting director Mateu Alemany about a possible Camp Nou transfer.

Foyth is one of several right-backs that Barcelona are believed to be targeting before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.

Thomas Meunier, Jeremie Frimpong, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and Diogo Dalot are also thought to be on Barcelona’s radar.

The latest update suggests Foyth is a serious option for Barcelona but it seems his price tag will be a problem for Xavi’s side.

Foyth has a release clause set at €65 million, while Villarreal paid €15m for him last summer and won’t want to let him leave on the cheap.

Barcelona had been keen to sign Cesar Azpilicueta from Chelsea but a move failed to materialize and the right-back has since renewed at Stamford Bridge

Xavi does have Sergino Dest and Sergi Roberto in his squad but opted to start center-back Ronald Araujo at right-back in Barcelona’s opening match of the squad against Rayo.
