Southampton want to sign Barcelona defender

A young player may end up in the Premier League.

Southampton are targeting the transfer of Barcelona defender Junior Firpo. The British press informs about it. The Saints need to find a replacement for Ryan Bertrand, who will leave the club at the end of June.

Transfermarkt estimates Firpo at € 10 million. Earlier it was reported that Barça would not mind getting rid of the 22-year-old Spaniard.

In the season that ended, Firpo played only 18 matches, scored one goal and made one goal assist.
