Barcelona line up shock signing of 50-cap international

By Mark Peters IN General,Transfers - 10:15 Nov 12th 2016

Following the summer departure of Dani Alves, Barcelona have struggled to find a reliable replacement at right-back, with Aleix Vidal out of favour and Sergi Roberto out of position.

That could all be about to change in January, however, with reports in the Daily Mail suggesting that Glen Johnson of Stoke City is a short-term target.

GLEN JOHNSON

Acquiring top talent during the January transfer window can be notoriously difficult, so it seems as if the Catalan giants are instead focusing their efforts on bringing in a proven performer.

The 32-year-old is certainly that, having spent the last 15 seasons playing his football in the Premier League, as well as clocking up over 50 England caps:
