Diario AS: Barcelona ‘interested’ in Nicolas Tagliafico

Barcleona are still keen in a summer move from Ajax's defender Nicolas Tagliafico, according to a report in Diario AS.

The story, which cites Dutch sports website BeSoccer, states that the Argentinian left back remains on La Blaugrana's radar, as they look to find cover for Jordi Alba for the 2019-20 campaign. 

The 26 year-old has impressed for Ajax this season, as they powered into the Champions League last 16, and he has netted four goals in all competitions for the Dutch side this season.

Alba has recently agreed a new deal with Ernesto Valverde's side, and the may have difficulty persuading him to settle for a squad role at the Nou Camp next season.

Real Madrid have also been linked with a move for the former Real Murcia defender, however his agent has confirmed that neither they, nor Barcelona, have many any contact at this stage.
