The Spaniard, who arrived in London in 2012 from Marseille, sees his contract run out at the end of the current season.

The paper states that Xavi is personally pushing for the deal to go through, with club president Joan Laporta agreeind to his wish.

Any move for Azpilicueta, though, would spell the end of Dani Alves’ short-term return.

The Brazilian re-signed for Barcelona earlier this year, but is not able to make his debut until January.

If Azpilicueta’s free transfer is finalised, it would mean no contract renewal for Alves, according to the publication.
