Andreas Christensen is set to be come a Barcelona player in time for the 2022-23 campaign. The Danish defender left Chelsea on a free transfer at the end of last season.
Christensen will be hoping to force his way into Xavi’s starting XI. But he will face competition for his place, particularly if Kounde or Koulibaly will arrive.
Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga knows all about playing with Christensen and has told Barca fans what they can expect from the center-back.
“I think he is a very good player. He is fast, very good in the team’s building from the back, with very good footwork and has a lot of experience for his age, having played more than 50 games with Denmark, and having played football at a very high level,” he said.
“He wanted a change, to look for something new and I think [Barcelona] are going to have a centre-back for many years to come.”

Christensen is certainly an experienced defender but supporters may have a few doubts about the Dane. Especially after a wobbly end to the season with Chelsea.
The 26-year-old had a really tough time in Chelsea’s Champions League defeat to Real Madrid, in particular. He lett the field at half-time as the Blues KO of the competition.
