Nou Camp side chase St Mary’s defender.
Barcelona have set their sights on Southampton defender Dejan Lovren according to the Daily Star.
The Croatian international is also known to be a player that Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers wants to sign this summer and the Saints may struggle to keep hold of the former Lyon man.
Southampton signed Lovren in an £8.5m last June after three solid seasons at Lyon and made 32 appearances in all competitions last term.
Barcelona could well see the 24 year old as a possible long term replacement for exiting veteran Carles Puyol with incoming boss Luis Enrique keen to ring the changes in his Nou Camp squad after an average trophy-less campaign in 2013/14, which effectively cost Gerardo Martino his job.
