Sevilla coach Vincenzo Montella isn't surprised Barcelona are keen on Clement Lenglet.
Barca are preparing to meet the French defender's €40m buyout clause.
"Lenglet is a champion in the head and on the pitch," said Montella.
"He could play in the future for a big team like Barcelona but I hope he stays at Sevilla for a few years."
Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido has declared they're in talks with Lenglet about a new contract.
