Barcelona and Chelsea are, according to The Sun, the two clubs best place to land Allan Arigoni, the Grasshopper's full-back who stands out for his speed. According to the English media, Barça have sent Jose Mari Bakero to check out the defender.

Arigoni's stand out quality is his speed. His pace has allowed the 21-year-old to break into the team (he's played 15 league games), setting up five goals. A study revealed that he, along with Borussia Dortmund's Achraf Hakimi, is the quickest defender in the game at 35km/h. 

The Sun adds that neither Barça nor Chelsea have made an official offer yet, but say he could be part of Frank Lampard's future transfer plans.
