Barcelona may reportedly make an approach for Atletico Madrid defender Felipe during the January transfer window.

Barcelona have reportedly identified Atletico Madrid defender Felipe as a potential replacement for Gerard Pique.

While the Catalan giants have already been looking for long-term alternatives to the 33-year-old, a significant injury has left Barcelona short of options in the middle of their backline.

Despite talk of widespread pay cuts at Camp Nou, Barcelona are likely to be restricted when it comes to making new signings in January.

However, according to AS, Barcelona have taken an interest in Felipe, who has found himself in and out of the Atletico XI this season.

With Diego Simeone's men currently challenging for silverware in two competitions, club officials are unlikely to give the green light to a sale.

Nevertheless, the 31-year-old only has 19 months remaining on his contract at Wanda Metropolitano.
