The Spanish giants are looking to bring in both stars as they look to try and challenge Real Madrid next season.

Chelsea skipper Azpilicueta reportedly would like to leave the club, however he’s refusing to submit a transfer request out of respect for the side he has been with for a decade.

Alonso on the other hand has made his desire to depart more obvious, sighting his hunger to play in his home country.

According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, the Catalan club are still hopeful they’ll be able to secure the pair this summer.

He claimed: “Barcelona are still working on Marcos Alonso deal. No doubts on player side: potential agreement ready on personal terms with Barça, still waiting to find solution with Chelsea.

“Barça are also hoping to receive final answer for Cesar Azpilicueta soon.”

Azpilicueta has now spent ten seasons at Stamford Brdge, helping them win two Premier League titles and the Champions League last season.

Alonso on the other hand joined in 2016, with the 31-year-old developing an eye for goal the Blues utilised on many occasions.


Barcelona meanwhile have been one of the more busy sides in the transfer window so far, looking to complete a blockbuster deal for Robert Lewandowski.

They have also already secured a deal for Chelsea’s out-of-contract Andreas Christensen.
