According to Mundo Deportivo, the Catalan club have already contacted his agent
FC Barcelona are considering the option of signing a defensive midfielder who can also play as center-back if Mascherano ends up leaving the club. One of the names that meet this profile, liked by the sports direction is Grzegorz Krychowiak, Polish player of Sevilla.
Krychowiak, 26, is a very intelligent footballer and also has a good technique when playing the ball out. He is a very physical player and dominates the aerial plays thanks to his 186 centimeters tall. He knows the Spanish Liga, he is competitive and comes from Sevilla, a good reference as seen in signings such as Rakitic, Alves, Keita and Adriano.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Barça have already contacted the agent of the Polish footballer to know his availability. Some major clubs have been interested in him. He has a very high buyout clause, €45 million. These two facts complicate the situation, as the club have as priority signing a good center-back and a young striker. However, if Mascherano can be transferred for a good amount of money, the name of Krychowiak may become important in the near future.
