Barcelona reportedly want to bring Bayern Munich defender David Alaba to Camp Nou this summer to provide competition for Jordi Alba at left-back.
Alba is currently Barca's only senior option on the left side of the defence and the Spanish champions are expected to bring in another player capable of filling that role.
According to ESPN, Alaba is the club's number one target, with the 27-year-old potentially available in this summer's transfer window following Bayern's purchase of Lucas Hernandez.
Since debuting for the first team in 2010, Alaba has made 344 appearances in all competitions for the German club, winning seven Bundesliga titles, three DFB-Pokal trophies and one Champions League.
Arsenal and Real Madrid were both linked with swoops for the Austria international earlier this year.body check tags ::
