  • The Catalans have crashed out in the Champions League and are looking forward towards succeeding in the Europa League

Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger and Pulisic who currently play for Premier League side Chelsea have reportedly emerged as transfer targets for Barcelona who are looking forward to bolster their squad.

Things have fallen apart this season at the Camp Nou which forced Barcelona to hire Xavi as their new coach even though the Spaniard is also not finding it rosy so far this term.

For the first time in more than 10 years, Barcelona failed to qualify from the Champions League group stage and they have been dropped to the Europa League.

According to the report on UK Sun and Daily Mail, Xavi sees Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger and Pulisic as the players who have what it takes to help his squad.

Will EPL side Chelsea allow them to leave for Barcelona?

Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger are entering the last months of their contract at Chelsea and the Blues' chiefs see these two players as important members of the squad.

Christian Pulisic on the other hand has struggled with an ankle injury this season featuring in just six Premier League games this campaign.

And as things stand, the American international might be loaned out in the coming transfer window by Chelsea eggheads so as for him to get enough playing time elsewhere.

After 16 games played so far this season, Chelsea are currently occupying third position with 36 points and are two behind leaders Manchester City.
