Reports have emerged claiming that Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte admits he has hopes of joining Barcelona.
Laporte is waiting for a call from the Treble champs.
“For now I am with Athletic and I am focused on the season. Barça are the best team in the world, but for now there is nothing concrete and no-one has directly called me. I asked and I’m patiently waiting,” Laporte told Football365.
“This Barça rumour appears in each market. The most recent rumour was about PSG’s interest. The journalists insist, but there’s nothing in it.
“As for possible contact with Barça, you have to see what happens with my club because I am under contract. Athletic have never mentioned Barça’s interest to me.”
The French defender is also linked with a move to the Premier League with Arsenal and Manchester United.
