Villarreal centre-back Pau Torres emerges as a transfer target for Barcelona, according to a report.

Barcelona have reportedly identified Villarreal centre-back Pau Torres as a potential signing during this summer's transfer window.

The 23-year-old has been in impressive form for the Yellow Submarine during the 2019-20 campaign, contributing two goals and two assists in 36 appearances in all competitions.

Torres, who made his Spain debut last November, is believed to have a €50m (£45.6m) release clause in his current deal, which is due to run until the summer of 2023.

Chelsea and Manchester City have both previously been linked with the defender, but according to RAC1, Barca are also weighing up a summer approach.

Torres played a key role in Villarreal claiming a fifth-placed finish in La Liga but could leave Estadio de la Ceramica ahead of next season in search of pastures new.

Barca, who conceded this season's La Liga title to Real Madrid, could prioritise a move for a new centre-back in the upcoming market due to Samuel Umtiti's injury problems.
