Barcelona watching River Plate defender Eder Alvarez Balanta

Barcelona are keeping tabs on River Plate defender Eder Alvarez Balanta.

The Colombian has been recommended to Barca by coach Tata Martino as a long-term successor for Carles Puyol.

Balanta, 20, will be watched by Barca this season, though plans for a move could be brought forward for January if Puyol fails to prove his fitness.
