Cesar Azpilicueta
Cesar Azpilicueta has won two league titles at Chelsea since joining the club in 2012.

Barcelona are interested in signing Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta, according to Football London.

Azpilicueta initially joined the Blues as a right-back in 2012, but was converted to a left-back by Jose Mourinho, who was not convinced by an ageing Ashley Cole or inexperienced Ryan Bertrand.

The Spaniard was a revelation, and fast forced his way into his country’s national setup. Upon Antonio Conte’s arrival at the club, Azpilicueta was moved to centre-back, and played every single minute of Chelsea’s title-winning Premier League campaign.

His good performances in SW6 do not appear to have gone unnoticed. As per Football London, Barcelona have accepted defeat in their pursuit of Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin, and will instead turn their attentions to Azpilicueta.

However, Football London believe that Antonio Conte is not willing to part with Azpilicueta, who he considers a very important member in his squad. He is also thought to be under consideration to replace John Terry as club captain.
