Spanish giants Barcelona are reportedly eyeing a shock move for Chelsea loanee Ian Maatsen. Chelsea starlet Maatsen is presently on a season-long loan deal to Coventry City in the English Championship. The left-back joined the Sky Blues on loan at the start of the season.
Barcelona are cash strapped and they are looking for cheap and quality deals. To this effect, Dutch left-back Maatsen is said to be on their shortlist and it remains to be seen if Chelsea would entertain any transfer talk from the Catalans. It has already been speculated that Chelsea are considering whether or not to recall him due to the injury to Chelsea left-sided defender Ben Chilwell though Coventry City boss Mark Robins has played it down as he’s keen to keep Maatsen at the club until the summer at least.
Ben Chilwell and Marcos Alonso are the two left-back options in the Chelsea first team, but the latter will soon 31 and might need replacing which is where Maatsen comes in.
