Reports have emerged claiming that Barcelona chief Robert Fernandez is eyeing Valencia defender Shkodran Mustafi.
The Spanish giants will be allowed to return to the transfer market in January after this summer’s ban and a new centre-half is on Fernandez’s agenda.
Radio Esport Valencia says he and Barca coach Luis Enrique have discussed moving for former Everton junior Mustafi.
The defender has also been linked with Real Madrid in recent weeks.
Tied to Los Che until 2019, Mustafi’s contract carries a €50 million buyout clause.
