Barcelona have joined the race for in-demand Corinthians full-back Guilherme Arana (pictured right), according to reports in Spain.

The 20-year-old has reportedly attracted interest from both Sevilla and Atletico Madrid, and now Diario Sport reveals the Catalan giants have registered an interest.

Officials at the Camp Nou are reportedly concerned by Jordi Alba’s frequent injuries and the jury is still reportedly out on Lucas Digne as a long-term solution in the position.

The Under-20 international has made 45 appearances for the Sao Paulo-based club this calendar year and could be available for between €12m and €15m.

Corinthians are said to be in ‘serious financial difficulties’ and could sell as early as January after previously resisting offers.
