Aymen Abdennour: Toulouse defender says he is a target for Barcelona

Barcelona are reportedly planning to bring in a new defender in the summer and Abdennour claims he is one of the players under consideration.

He has also been linked with Arsenal and Manchester City in the past and the Tunisian, who can play at centre-half or left-back, would welcome the chance to join Barcelona.

"I know that Barcelona are following me and four other defenders, at least," Abdennour told Radio Montecarlo.

"If there is to be an offer from them at the end of the season then I will not say no, but Toulouse's president will decide."

Abdennour was keen to take up Barcelona on their offer to watch the second leg of the Champions League tie against Milan at Camp Nou last week, but Toulouse prevented the 23-year-old from attending.

He added: "I almost went but the coach and the president asked me to stay so I could be at training the following day."

According to reports in France, Toulouse's economic problems mean that they are looking to cash in on Abdennour, who was signed from Werder Bremen in 2011.

"Toulouse are very close to Barca, so recruiters from Camp Nou often come to Toulouse and they know Abdennour very well," Abdennour's agent Abdelkader Jilani told Shems FM recently.

"Abdennour will definitely join a top European side whether it's Barcelona or not."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
