Barcelona ran their eye over Italy international Mattia De Sciglio during Sunday’s Milan derby, reports Mundo Deportivo.
Barca are looking for a new right back to replace Aleix Vidal, who is expected to leave the Nou Camp in January, and Milan’s De Sciglio is on their radar.
Robert Fernandez, the club’s sporting director, travelled to San Siro on the weekend to watch the 24-year-old in action during the 2-2 draw.
The Italy international is under contract with the Rossoneri until June 2018.
Ignacio Abate has also been linked to Barcelona because of his experience, the 30-year-oldl Milan captain seen as the kind of veteran who would help the Catalans. It isn’t a coincidence that he is named after the likes of Lichtsteiner, Srna and Rukavina, all mentioned in the last few weeks.
