Philippe Coutinho isn’t the only Liverpool player Barcelona have their eye on, according to Don Balon.
The Catalans have been tracking 18-year-old Ben Woodburn, who is widely tipped to become a star for both the Reds and for Wales.
Barcelona have already approached Woodburn’s representatives, with Liverpool determined to hang on to the player who made his first-team debut last season at age 17.
Barcelona are watching Kalidou Koulibaly, but fear the Napoli defender is likely to be too expensive, reports Mundo Deportivo.
Koulibaly is a target for Chelsea and reports have suggested that Napoli will be prepared to sell the centre-half at the end of the season for a fee in the region of €60 million.
He was scouted by Barca during last weekend’s game against Roma and, while sporting director Robert Fernandez is a huge admirer of Koulibaly, the price could be a sticking point.
Barcelona are hot on the trail of 16-year-old Brazilian striker Lincoln, according to As
Lincoln is currently impressing at the Under-17 World Cup in India and has scored three goals in three appearances, with his value placed at €30 million.
He plays for Flamengo in Brazil and is a team-mate of Vinicius Junior, who has already agreed a deal to join Barca’s arch-rivals Real Madrid.
Barcelona will look to the Bundesliga if their January pursuit of Philippe Coutinho fails, according to Sport .
If the Camp Nou side were unable to sign the Liverpool player during the summer, they have chosen their alternatives if they are rebuffed once again. Max Meyer of Schalke and Bayer Leverkusen’s Julian Brandt are top of their shortlist, with Barca already having made contact with both clubs.
