Barcelona have solved their defensive dilemma according to AS who have revealed that the club have already agreed a deal for Mats Hummels.
The Borussia Dortmund defender looks to be on his way to the Nou Camp after spending five years under Jurgen Klopp.
Hummels has a market value of £23 million so it is believed that negotiations have been arranged around this figure.
Questions were being raised whether the club would try and keep Carles Puyol on at the club after the initial transfer ban at the start of April which ruled them out from buying players for 14 months.
However, after the club made their appeal yesterday, the ban has been suspended which will allow the club to make transfers from the 1st July.
Barcelona are also believed to be in talks with Chelsea over the signing of David Luiz for a fee of around £25 million.
It is also understood that the Catalan club are closing in on deals for Alex Halilovic and goalkeeper, Marc-André ter Stegen.
Klopp, who recently ruled himself out of the Manchester United job, remains in the hot-seat at the Westfalenstadion until 2018, will need to go in search of a replacement for the German if the reports are true.
