Celebration: Moussa Wague wheels away after his effort against Japan.

Barcelona are tracking Senegal’s World Cup star Moussa Wague, Mundo Deportivo reports.

The 19-year-old, who is a right-sided defender by trade, starred for the west African nation during the tournament in Russia and scored in the 2-2 Group H draw against Japan.

Wague currently plies his trade with Belgian outfit Eupen in the Jupiler Pro League and has emerged as a top talent following a fine breakout year in 2017.

Barca have yet to table a bid for the teenager’s services but are believed to be at the front of the queue to sign him as a squad back-up.

After five seasons at Chelsea, Brazilian winger Willian is keen for a move to the Camp Nou, according to Sport.

However, the Blues, reportedly, still want to retain the dynamic midfielder’s services and have offered the 29-year-old a bumper new contract.

Willian had a difficult relationship with former Blues boss Antonio Conte last year and that motivated him to look elsewhere, despite Maurizio Sarri’s arrival this summer.

That, and the fact that Chelsea won’t be featuring in the Champions League this coming season, has added to speculation that his time in west London is all but over.

Barcelona have had three bids rejected for Willian so far and the Blues are currently weighing up Blaugrana’s latest offer in the region of £65 million.
