According to reports in the El Mundo Deportivo, Riechedly Bazoer is wanted by Barcelona coach Luis Enrique as cover for Sergio Busquets. The Catalan club’s original target Steven N’Zonzi is now unattainable so attentions have been turned to the Dutch U21 international.

The links between the clubs is long standing and even Bazoer himself hinted at the preference of playing in Spain, “Everyone has a dream. A dream for me is to play football in Spain,” he told NOS.

Deemed as surplus to requirements at the Amsterdam Arena, the asking price for the player is much lower than in the last summer transfer window. He could be available for as little as ten million euros.
