Ronald Koeman has had a lot of problems managing his defense, ever since he took charge of Barcelona. There have been many injuries that have led to the season being dented in many situations. Gerard Pique was out for a long time around four months this season with a knee injury. Samuel Umtiti has been injured and inconsistent for a very long time now. The Frenchman did not pick it up and stay in form ever since his beautiful campaign in the 2018 FIFA World Cup ended.

More from Everything Barca

According to reports from Calcio Mercato, the Dutchman is reportedly interested in bringing in new centre-backs at the club. These very same reports suggest that Barcelona are interested in signing Alessio Romagnoli.

Romagnoli was a solid player at the back for Milan but has regressed in recent years. Once heavily respected, now the player seems to have lost his status at the club. Especially on the arrival of Fikayo Tomori from Chelsea. Tomori has impressed the fans and the coach at Milan and the Rossoneri are looking to replace Alessio Romagnoli.

Barcelona have multiple young defenders

There have been many youngsters over at the Nou Camp such as Oscar Mingueza and Ronald Araujo who stepped up and did what the team needed them too. The defenders did quite well for their age and lack of experience. However, the Blaugrana are looking to replace Samuel Umtiti who seems to have reached an impasse. Similarly, the club is also not very satisfied with Clement Lenglet.

If Romagnoli is to move to the La Liga to play for Barca, he will have the chance and an opportunity to revive his career. The Milan centre-back will be a good option for the Catalans, as he’s very good on the ball. His passing abilities are very strong and he’s also very good in the air. Under correct coaching with the likes of Ronald Koeman, the player can turn his career around to a more positive situation from what it is now.
