Barcelona 'are targeting Lazio defender Felipe as partner of Pique'

Barcelona are working to sort out next season's squad - despite the coronavirus crisis - and one of the positions to reinforce is the defence.

The squad right now has three defenders - Pique, Lenglet and Umtiti - and they are looking for a fourth. Even more so with Umtiti's knee a problem still.

Sporting director Eric Abidal and his men are interested in Brazilian defender Luiz Felipe. Per Il corriere dello Sport the defender is a target for the Catalans.

He has a contract that ends in 2022 and has been key for Lazio this season. They are trying to tie him down. At 1.90m, the 22 year old is one of the most promising players in the world. Some Barca staff have seen him in the flesh.

They wanted De Ligt last summer but he went to Juve so Barca are still hunting for a defender.
