Manchester City defender Joao Cancelo is a summer transfer target for Barcelona, according to a report.

Barcelona are reportedly preparing a summer move for Manchester City defender Joao Cancelo.

Nelson Semedo continues to be linked with a transfer away from Camp Nou, meaning that the Spanish champions could be in the market for a new right-back ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Quique Setien's side are lining up an offer for Cancelo, whose future with the Premier League champions is currently being called into question.

The Portugal international only joined City from Juventus last summer but has struggled to command a regular spot in Pep Guardiola's first XI during the 2019-20 campaign.

The 25-year-old has only featured on 11 occasions in the Premier League, with Kyle Walker currently ahead of him in the pecking order at the Etihad Stadium.

Cancelo's contract with his English club is due to run until the summer of 2025.
