Barcelona reportedly wants to bring in players to welcome a new era with Xavi. According to reports circulating, the Spanish giants are eyeing several Chelsea players.
Barcelona is currently starting a new era with Xavi. The former Blaugrana midfielder returned to Camp Nou after Ronald Koeman was sacked.
However, Barcelona’s performance so far has not been satisfactory. The coach is said to want additional power in his squad.
Barcelona already has a list of players who want to be recruited in the transfer market. Some of the players they are targeting come from Chelsea.
Here are five Chelsea players who are Barcelona’s targets .
Cesar Azpilicueta is currently the Chelsea captain. Even so, Azpilicueta has a great opportunity to leave the Blues at the end of the season.
Azpilicueta’s contract with Chelsa will expire at the end of the season. This attracted the attention of Barcelona who were looking for additional ammunition.
According to an ESPN report , Barcelona interested in using the services of Azpilicueta.
Andreas Christensen’s contract with Chelsea is about to expire. The defender will be on a free transfer in the summer of 2022.
So far, the negotiation process for Christensen’s new contract is deadlocked. El Nacional claims Barcelona are interested in accommodating the Danish player.
According to the report, Barcelona are interested in Christensen’s actions with Chelsea. The defender is considered to be able to strengthen their fragile defense.
Christian Pulisic did not get many opportunities to play at Chelsea. His position in the first team of the Blues began to be marginalized.
Barcelona are reportedly interested in signing Pulisic. They made the player an alternative to Manchester City star Raheem Sterling.
However, the financial crisis that wrapped Barcelona is still not over. Therefore, the Blaugrana are only willing to sign Pulisic on loan.
Barcelona are reportedly interested in Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech. According to ESPN, they want to sign the player during the next winter transfer window.
Ziyech officially moved to Chelsea in July 2020. Unfortunately, his career at Stamford Bridge has not gone smoothly due to frequent injuries.
This season, Ziyech has only played five games in the Premier League. He recorded 210 minutes of playing without scoring a goal.

Currently Werner’s contract at Chelsea is still valid until 2025. He has only scored three goals in 11 games with the Blues.
