Barcelona are considering to sign Olympique Lyon centre-back Samuel Umtiti. According to RAC1, Barcelona's technical director Robert Fernandez and his right hand Robert Urbano were at Lyon to watch live the match between the local team and Nice with the mission to watch Umtiti's performance.

With the future of Vermaelen and Marc Bartra unsure and Mathieu and Mascherano one year older next season, Barcelona will need to strengthen the defensive line. Will Umtiti be one of the selected men? He's a 22 year old centre-back, left-footed, international with the low categories of France and with great athletic conditions. His market price could be around 12 million euros.
