Barcelona maintaining interest in Chelsea midfielder Saul Niguez

Barcelona are maintaining interest in Chelsea midfielder Saul Niguez.

The Spain international is on a season-long loan at Chelsea from Atletico.

Sport says Barcelona are interested in signing the 27-year-old, with coach Xavi regarding highly Saul's versatility, who can play both in midfield and on the left wing.

Chelsea carry a permanent option in the loan, but are unlikely to exercise it and will let Saul return to Madrid.

Saul has a contract with Atlético until 2026.
