Barcelona are on the lookout for a new left-winger heading into the summer transfer window and the name of Khvicha Kvaratskhelia has been touted as a possible target.

The 23-year-old Georgian international is someone that Barça rate and admire highly owing to his speed, dribbling skills, and effectiveness in the final third.

But the financial situation makes things difficult for the Blaugrana to pursue the Serie A superstar with full fervour.

Barcelona contact Napoli for Kvaratskhelia

Despite that, Barcelona have made contact with Napoli to learn about the situation of Kvaratskhelia heading into the summer transfer window, reports AS.

The directors of the two clubs have been in touch to discuss the situation of the 23-year-old speedster, the report states, with Barça eager to stay updated.

In fact, not very long ago, Kvaratskhelia’s agent, Mamuka Jugeli, went on to admit that it would please him if he would join Barça, as he said:

“His father and I are Barça fans and it would make me very happy to see him play there, even though Khvicha is a Real Madrid fan.”

Napoli want to renew Kvaratskhelia

However, signing Kvaratskhelia from Napoli will not be easy as the Italian club’s president, Aurelio De Laurentiis, is keen on handing the Georgian international a new contract.

Kvaratskhelia’s current contract runs until 2027 and the Serie A champions are planning to offer him a new deal with improved wages to keep him at the club.

The idea is to build the team for the coming seasons around him after a disappointing campaign this time out.

So, it would make things hard for Barcelona if they are indeed serious about signing Kvaratskhelia in the summer.
