Barcelona and Real Madrid to battle for Ajax right-back Mazraoui

The Catalan club have also sounded out Azpilicueta's situation at Chelsea

| sport

Barcelona are keeping an eye on the market for right-backs for next season. The club feel they need to strengthen in that area and have been following Noussair Mazraoui for a while, a player whose contract with Ajax is expiring and has not yet renewed.

Curiously, in recent hours, he has also been linked with Real Madrid. Mazraoui represents a huge market opportunity and many top European clubs are following his situation.

Mazraoui is an attacking full-back. He's had a brilliant season with Ajax this term and the Dutch club want to renew his contract but an exit appears more likely at this stage.

Barça have followed him in several games and the reports are good. Interestingly, he's represented by the same people as Ziyech, the Chelsea winger who could also join the club in January.

The Blaugrana want to improve the squad ut have to do so at little to no cost. For that reason, Azpilicueta is also a target as his contract expires at Chelsea.
