Serie A sides on alert for Umtiti loan

Spanish newspaper Sport claims that Barcelona are prepared to release Samuel Umtiti on loan, with Napoli, Roma, Lazio and Torino interested.

The 26-year-old France international was signed from Olympique Lyonnais for €25m in 2016 and is under contract until 2023, but has struggled for playing time due to numerous injury concerns.

The centre-back managed only 18 competitive appearances this season and Spanish newspaper Sport claims Barca are prepared to send him out on loan to regain his confidence.

Serie A would be a good destination for him, with Napoli, Roma, Lazio and Torino all believed to be interested.

However, it’s also suggested Umtiti is not eager to leave Camp Nou and wants to fight for his place, confident the injuries will be shrugged off soon.
