Barca have defensive alternatives

Barcelona could target Valencia’s Jeremy Mathieu and Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen if they fail to land David Luiz or Daniel Agger.

The Blaugrana have already made bids for the Chelsea and Liverpool centre-backs, but with those offers being rejected, the Camp Nou club are drawing up a list of other candidates.

Mundo Deportivo have claimed that Tata Martino’s men are already looking at the French and Belgian defenders, although it is unlikely that Los Che and Spurs will want to sell.
