Barcelona has decided that they will be bringing in new reinforcements in the summer to help them regain the La Liga title, as well as help them in the UEFA Champions League. The team right now is quite good on its own, however, there are a few positions that can be improved and Xavi Hernandez wants to target those areas in the team. The Barca legend firstly wanted to straighten out the attack of the team and after he almost overhauled the forward line in the winter transfer window, he moved his attention to the defence of the team.

The team’s defence while being good is not perfect. The centre-back position is filled with only two capable players at the moment Gerard Pique and Ronald Raujo and Pique is too old to be in the future of the team. It is the same case with the full-backs, Jordi Alba and Dani Alves. While the full-backs are good and can give an above-average performance in most games, they are no longer youthful and they essentially struggle with keeping up with the youngsters. Xavi has decided that he needs new full-backs and Noussair Mazraoui has been chosen as the right-back.

Barcelona is very close to signing Noussair Mazraoui from Ajax

The Ajax man is running out of a contract soon and he is hoping to join Barca at the end of the season as a free agent. According to reports, Bayern Munich was also interested in the player however, the Morrocan right back prefers Barca. According to SPORT, the player has already rejected his pending offers in hopes of joining the Catalan side and Fabrizio Romano had reported that Barca already made a 5 million euros a year contract for the player. These are all good signs for the Blaugrana and if they do manage to sign the player, then they can let go of Sergino Dest who never really managed to impress at the club.
