Spanish giants Barcelona are reportedly keen on signing Brescia midfielder Sandro Tonali as a future replacement for Sergio Busquets.

The Catalan outfit are understood to be interested in bolstering their midfield options this summer in order to allow them to rest the 31-year-old Busquets more often.

The Barca vice-captain remains an important part of the first team at Camp Nou, making 32 appearances across all competitions this season, but reports suggest that Quique Setien is looking ahead to the future.

Speculation from Spain claims that Barcelona stand as one of a host of clubs interested in Tonali, who is valued at €25m (£22.7m).

The 19-year-old has made 24 appearances for Brescia this season, with his form for the Serie A strugglers earning him international recognition from Italy.

Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Inter Milan and Juventus have all also been credited with an interest in the midfielder, who has previously been dubbed 'the next Andrea Pirlo'.
