Barcelona are eyeing up a shock £20 million move for Chelsea centre-half Andreas Christensen, according to The Sun.
The Danish centre-half has found first-team opportunities at the Premier League club non-existent and as such has spent the last 18 months on loan in Germany with Borussia Monchengladbach.

Christensen has been granted the opportunity to play regularly in the Bundesliga and Champions League, with impressive performances for the German club.
The report suggests that the eight-times capped Denmark international has impressed the Catalan powerhouses, who believe Chelsea would be willing to offload the Scandinavian 20-year-old.
Christensen is one of a wealth of players to be bought by the Stamford Bridge club and subsequently spend the majority of his time away from West London on loan.
Barcelona signed Samuel Umtiti over the summer but there are doubts over the longevity of Javier Mascherano at Camp Nou, leading to speculation that Barcelona could move to sign another centre-half.
A 12-minute substitute appearance in 2015 is the sum total of Christensen’s Premier League experience with Chelsea.
