Barcelona are not the only team interested in signing Chelsea legend Branislav Ivanovic. The Serb is also thought to be attracting interest from the Premier League.

Ivanovic knows better than most not what it takes to, not only compete, but thrive in the Premier League. The Serb made 261 appearances in the competition during his time as a Chelsea player – and has three winners’ medals to show for it!

He’s now playing for Zenit, who sit top of the Russian Premier League after ten games have been played. You may think it’d be bizarre for him to depart, with his team favourites to win the title, but when Barcelona come knocking, few could turn it down.

The Daily Mail believe that the Catalan giants are very much interesedt, with Ernesto Valverde facing a crisis at the back. Barcelona will face competition from two Premier League sides in their quest to recruit the 34-year-old, however.

The report claims thatĀ Fulham and Crystal Palace have expressed an interest in signing Ivanovic, but it’s at this point unclear whether they will take that interest any further. Only time will tell what the future holds for Branna.
