Barcelona target Valencia defender Jeison Murillo

Barcelona are in the process of finalizing a loan deal for Valencia defender Jeison Murillo, according to Catalan radio station RAC1. The deal would be a good one for Barcelona who’ve been looking for a way to fix their defence after Samuel Umtiti and Thomas Vermaelen injury.

Murillo has had some injury problems over the last 12 months and only started 16 games in the league. Being only 26-years-old Murillo could be a great prospect for Barcelona should he remain healthy.

The main reason Barcelona seem to be targeting Murillo is that they can’t seem to get a handle on Ajax’s Matthjis de Ligt in the January transfer window. They really need a experienced defender. Murillo might be the top tier player they want .
