In their bid to strengthen their defence this summer transfer window, Barcelona have identified Jules Kounde and Kalidou Koulibaly that they believe would help them to achieve that goal.

The club already have the signature of Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen secured although it has not yet been made official. He will join Barcelona on a free transfer this summer. According to Football espana.

To land the signature of Kounde and Koulibaly of Sevilla and Napoli respectively seems to be a difficult task as both players are on the market this close-season but have no shortage of suitors in La Liga, Serie A and, of course, the Premier League.

Kounde is expected to leave the Sanchez-Pizjuan this summer for a fee in the region of €65m with Chelsea and Liverpool also showing interest.

Koulibaly is entering the final year of his contract at the Diego Armando Maradona and is thought to command a similar fee. Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Internazionale, Roma, Aston Villa and Newcastle are interested.
