Barcelona have been rebuffed by Chelsea after an approach regarding a potential January move for Andreas Christensen.

The Spanish champions are currently looking into potential defensive reinforcements with Samuel Umtiti increasingly likely to undergo surgery on a knee injury.

Matthijs de Ligt, the Ajax defender, is Barcelona’s No.1 target, but Ajax are unwilling to sell until next summer.

That could see Barcelona move now, for Christensen, potentially freeing up De Ligt for others next summer; Juventus are monitoring his situation.

Christensen is also rumoured to be wanted by AC Milan as he considers a move away from Stamford Bridge having become unhappy with his role under Maurizio Sarri.
