Manchester City defender Angelino has reportedly emerged as summer transfer target for Spanish side Barcelona who are ready to bolster their squad for next season.
Barcelona board are still evaluating the 2019/20 season where they failed to lift any title and also suffered an embarrassing defeat against Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarterfinal.
There have been reports that the club's chiefs are planning to sell some players this summer and also bring in some fresh legs to help their quest next term.
And according to UK Sun, Angelino is now one of the targets wanted at Barcelona and the Catalans will be approaching the Citizens for a deal.
Angelino spent second part of last season on loan at RB Leipzig and helped the German side to reach the semifinal of the Champions League.
New Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman is planning to make big changes at the Nou Camp and will also try to convince Lionel Messi to stay.
Lionel Messi who has never played at any other club in his career has been linked with a move to Inter Milan and even Manchester City.
Meanwhile, Manchester City may want to do business with Barcelona since there is no assurance that Angelino would get regular playing time next term at the Etihad.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how new Barcelona boss, Ronald Koeman, is reportedly plotting to grab Georginio Wijnaldum away from Liverpool as he begins his two-year reign at the La Liga club.
The Dutchman was presented to the media earlier this week - taking over from former boss Quique Setién.
Having managed Wijnaldum at the national team level, Koeman is hoping to reunite with the midfielder at the Camp Nou.
The 29-year-old played a key role in the Reds' Champions League triumph and Premier League triumphs in the last two seasons.
However, his future at Anfield remains uncertain with his contract set to expire next summer as reported by 90 Min.
