Barcelona enter the race for Ederson

Mundo Deportive have now claimed that Barcelona are the latest club to join the queue of clubs interested in Ederson.

The report says that the Catalan club want to reinforce their midfield this summer and their sporting director, Deco, is preparing a list of names, with the Atalanta star thought to be one of the names on that list.


However, the publication makes it clear that Barca will not find it easy to sign Ederson as they face competition from Spurs, Atletico and Newcastle.
