Barcelona defender Andreas Christensen has been linked with a move back to the Premier League at the end of the season.

According to Fichajes, three Premier League clubs are keen on signing the 27-year-old defender this summer and it remains to be seen whether Barcelona are prepared to let him leave.

The Spanish outfit needs to add more depth at the back and it would be quite surprising if they decided to sanction his departure without bringing in a quality replacement.

The likes of Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur are thought to be keen on signing the player.

Christensen has impressed in the Premier League with Chelsea and he could prove to be a quality acquisition for all three clubs.

Newcastle will have to add more depth at the back and Denmark international would be a superb acquisition.

Similarly, Aston Villa will have to bring an upgrade on Tyrone Mings this summer. Unai Emery has improved the West Midlands club significantly, but they need to add more quality in order to fight for European football.

Tottenham Hotspur will have to bring in a reliable defensive partner for Cristian Romero and the 27-year-old Denmark international seems like the ideal fit.
