Barca to bid €20m for Marquinhos?

Barcelona will make a move for Roma centre-back Marquinhos over the summer, according to reports in the Spanish Press.

Marca have claimed that the Blaugrana will try to lure the 18-year-old to Camp Nou as they look to cure their recent defensive woes.

Borussia Dortmund's Mats Hummels remains the club's number one target, but the Madrid-based newspaper believe that Tito Vilanova's men will also try to sign the Brazilian youngster.

Barca have been tracking the defender since he burst into the Giallorossi first team earlier this season, but are only willing to pay up to €20m.

Roma however, will ask for a fee nearer to €30m.
