Barcelona Sign Benfica Nelson Semedo

14 Julio 2017

The FC crew discredit Neymar's push for Barcelona to bring in Brazilian teammate Paulinho.

Unfortunately, the club decided not to replace Dani Alves when he left for Juventus last year.

A Barcelona entourage has travelled to Lisbon to discuss the transfer of defender Nelson Semedo with Benfica, say reports in Spain.

Barcelona also hope that fellow Portuguese international Andre Gomes will help to welcome and settle Semedo should he make the move to the Nou camp.

Bellerin himself admitted Barca's interest made him happy, but he will not be re-joining his former club due to Arsenal's reluctance to sell.

After a disappointing last season, the club administration was heavily criticised for lack of depth in the squad.

Nelson Semedo had previously agreed to personal terms with Barcelona.

Semedo became a regular in Benficas first team since 2015 and appeared 63 times for them in the past two seasons, winning two Primeira Liga titles.

Barcelona have confirmed they have reached an agreement with Benfica to sign full-back Nelson Semedo, pending a medical.

Semedo, who is represented by Jorge Mendes' agency Gestifute, becomes Barca's third signing of the summer, following the decision to sign Marlon Santos on a permanent basis and promote him to the first team and the return of Gerard Deulofeu from Everton in a €12 million deal.

President Josep Maria Bartomeu stated this week that they hope to complete "two or three" deals before the window closes next month.
