Barcelona chief Segura in contact with Ivanovic, Chelsea's Luiz

Barcelona chief Pep Segura is seeking an experienced defensive signing for the January market.

Injury concerns for Thomas Vermaelen and the lack of cover for Samuel Umtiti has convinced Segura to seek a ‘veteran’ signing for the January market.

Zenit St Petersburg stopper Branislav Ivanovic and Chelsea’s David Luiz top his shortlist.

Mundo Deportivo says Ivanovic has responded positively to an initial approach, while Luiz has so far rejected the prospect.

Ivanovic would arrive on a free transfer as he comes off contract at Zenit next month.
