Xavier Mbuyamba could be swapping Barcelona for Juventus, according to reports in Italy.

The 18-year-old only joined Barcelona last year from MVV but he has already set his sights on a departure after being left unclear what the future holds for him in Spain.

His agent revealed recently that top clubs from around Europe are all battling to sign the centre-back, including Real Madrid, Chelsea, Ajax and AZ Alkmaar.

However, Juventus could be about to win the race, with Italian transfer expert Nicolò Schira reporting that the Serie A side are in discussions with Barcelona. The deal could see Mbuyamba swapped for Juventus winger Mamadou Kaly Sene.
