Barcelona check on Southampton fullback Soares, Man Utd target Gomes

Southampton fullback Cedric Soares is being linked with Barcelona.

El Mundo Deportivo says Barcelona's sporting director Robert Fernandez scouted three players during Portugal's 7-0 defeat of Estonia on Wednesday.

Barca are bracing themselves for a busy summer of transfer activity, with the La Liga champions considering bringing in a right-back, a back-up forward, a centre-back, a left-back and a central midfielder.

Fernandez travelled to Lisbon earlier this week and monitored the displays of Southampton fullback Soares, Lorient left-back Raphael Guerreiro and Valencia midfielder Andre Gomes, 22.

Gomes is also a target for Manchester United and Juventus.
