Barcelona have lined up Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze as an alternative for Neymar if they fail to land their former player from Paris Saint-Germain.
Barcelona maintain their interest to sign Neymar with Ousmane Dembelé struggling with injuries since his move to the Camp Nou from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2017, according to digital goal.
Although Villarreal have inserted a release clause of 63 million euros into Chukwueze's latest contract, he is still a cheaper option considering the staggering amount needed to get Neymar back.
The Nigerian star has scored 10 goals in 45 appearances for Villarreal and has provided five assists.
Neymar has been ruled out for one month after suffering an injury in the international friendly against Nigeria on Sunday in Singapore.
