According to reports from AS, Barcelona have made contact with Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta regarding a potential summer transfer.

The Spain international has become a key member of the Blues’ backline in recent seasons, featuring on either side of the defence and making 29 appearances as the west London club claimed the 2014/15 Premier League title.

But recent reports have suggested the 26-year-old’s Chelsea tenure could come to an end this summer upon the arrival of Antonio Conte – with some sources speculating he could even reunite with former Blues boss Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.

And the latest club to be put in the frame are Barcelona, who have identified the former Marseille man as a potential replacement for Dani Alves – should they miss out on priority right-back transfer target Hector Bellerin.

AS further allege that the Stamford Bridge outfit would be open to parting with Azpilicueta for the somewhat modest price of £14million.
