One player Xavi could replace Kounde with – he's taking 'giant steps' to break into first team

Xavi could call Hector Fort up to the first team soon, reports Mundo Deportivo's Jordi Battle.

The right-back is taking 'giant steps' to break into the first team this season.

The 17-year-old is described as a defender who is good at both defending and attacking. He's been a regular starter for Barca Atletic this term.

Both the coaching staff and the board are very pleased with Fort's progress.

The teenager could replace injured Jules Kounde in Barca's squad. He would be Joao Cancelo's backup in this case.

Earlier, Xavi called up a couple of young strikers from La Masia to replace Robert Lewandowski.
