After several weeks of touting the Arsenal defender,Spanish Giants decides to look somewhere else for another player.
Benfica’s player, Nelson Semedo who is rated €50m by his clubside is now on the radar.
Efforts are being made by the club to sign the highly rated right-back after dropping their interest in Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin.
Semedo who is 23 years of age have being a rock at the right side of the defense for the Portuguese side and his style of play suits that of Barcelona.
Barcelona’s sporting director Robert Fernandez is now in Lisbon to try and reach an agreement inorder to finalize paperwork.
No player have really filled the void which was left by Dani Alves exit last summer, with Sergi Roberto and Aleix Vidal failing to impress in Catalunya.
