Bournemouth are negotiating with Barcelona to sign Brazilian Neto as Scott Parker's side look to strengthen their goalkeeping department and add competition for Mark Travers

  • Bournemouth are in talks with Barcelona over Brazilian goalkeeper Neto, 33 
  • The veteran stopper would provide competition for first choice Mark Travers
  • Marco Silva's fellow newly promoted Fulham side are also keeping tabs on Neto 

Bournemouth are in talks with Barcelona over a potential move for veteran goalkeeper Neto. 

The 33-year-old made just four appearances for the Spanish giants last season as he acted as backup to No 1 Marc-Andre ter Stegen. 

And Scott Parker's Cherries are keen to add experience to their goalkeeping department.

Brazilian Neto would add experience and nous to a callow goalkeeping department.

Parker only has Will Dennis, 22, who has made just one appearance for the club, acting as cover and competition for 23-year-old Irishman Mark Travers.

One-cap international Neto, who has never broken into the first team at the Nou Camp, is considered expendable as Xavi's side look to raise funds, with youth product Inaki Pena poised to act as No 2 in Catalonia this season.

Fellow newly promoted side Fulham are also keeping tabs on the former Juventus and Valencia star. 

But the Cottagers have finally confirmed the £8m arrival of German goalkeeper Bernd Leno from Fulham, £4m of which is based on them staying up.

The 30-year-old has admitted he is 'relieved' after signing a three-year contract with the west London side.
