Barcelona target Atletico Madrid star

Barcelona are interested in signing Atletico Madrid forward Yannick Carrasco according to reports in Spain.

Cadena SER claim that Luis Enrique is keen on bringing the Belgium international to the Nou Camp as he is seen as an ideal backup for Neymar, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

Carrasco is a versatile forward, being capable of playing in any of the forward three positions, but is just one of a number of targets for the La Liga champions. He scored a late equaliser in last season Champions League final against Real Madrid, a game they eventually lost on penalties.

The 22-year old moved to the Vicente Calderon last summer, moving from AS Monaco for a fee of around €20million.

Barcelona have already completed the signing of Denis Suarez, as well agreeing a big money deal for France defender Samuel Umtiti.
