Barcelona interested in Juranovic

Barcelona are interested in signing Celtic's Josip Juranovic in January, with one source telling Sky Sports News he is their number one target to fill the right-back position.

Two Premier League clubs and Barca's La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid are also looking at the Croatia international.

Celtic have wanted to keep Juranovic in Glasgow and held talks over an improved new contract. However, neither party could reach an agreement before he departed for the World Cup in Qatar.

The 27-year-old still has more than three-and-a-half years left on his current deal and it's understood Celtic will look to sit down with Juranovic again when he returns from his post-World Cup break next week, but the Scottish champions are braced for bids amid interest from the Premier League and clubs in Europe.

Juranovic was given a week off following Croatia's World Cup campaign and will be assessed for the injury, which kept him out of the third-place play-off win over Morocco on Saturday.
