Metro have claimed that a host of Premier League clubs are on red alert with Carles Puyol having announced he is to leave Barcelona at the end of the season.
This news has caused some major interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
The Spanish central defender has immediately been linked with a move to England after announcing that his time in La Liga will be coming to an end in the summer.
The defender is a legend at the club, and has won just about everything there is to win at the Camp Nou meaning that his next club will have quite a lot to live up to!
As some of our punters claim, there will be a few sides who will be looking to lure Puyol to their club in the summer.
With Manchester City, Arsenal and also Liverpool in the hunt for a defender, not to mention Manchester United who are facing up to the departure of their skipper Nemanja Vidic, punters in the tavern will be monitoring this one closely as the summer draws closer.
Puyol has become one of the most respected and decorated players in world football and has made over 600 appearances for Barcelona.
This season has not gone quite to plan, with injuries limiting the player to only five appearances and forcing him to consider his future both at club and international level.
Will Puyol sample the delights of the Premier League before he finally hangs up his boots for good? Let us know your thoughts below.
