The Lions of Teranga stalwart has already been linked with a move to the English Premier League side, Liverpool, as manager Jurgen Klopp prepares for life without Virgil van Dijk.

However, the latest news is that the Catalan outfit is looking at a number of centre-backs to strengthen their back line and could bring in a player in the January transfer window.

Manager Ernesto Valverde has since listed his targets to boost the last four with names such as Red Bull Leipzig's young French defender Dayot Upamecano who has represented his country at youth level.

On the other hand, Senegalese international Kalidou Koulibaly is mentioned based on experience as well as Lazio's Dutch defender Stefan de Vrij.

It looks like the experienced centre back will have a few offers on his table to consider before the highly anticipated 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Meanwhile, his primary task is to help coach Aliou Cisse and his troops to secure a spot in Russia and ensure he competes against the best strikers in the world.
