Football Club Barcelona is considered one of the greatest clubs of all time. FC Barcelona recently signed two big star players like Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund and Philipe Coutinho from Liverpool football for record club fee at their respective time of transfer to fill the void left by Neymar Jr. Unfortunately for FC Barcelona, both of these players weren’t available for the whole season. Ousmane Dembele got injured twice and Philipe Coutinho joined the club during the midseason window and wasn’t able to play for them in the UEFA Champions League. So, the void left by Neymar hasn’t been completely filled. Not only that, the club legend, Andres Iniesta also left the club for a Japanese club. With both Iniesta and Neymar out of the picture and Ousmane Dembele having difficulties in adjusting for the club, Barcelona is in great need of signing some great players. Recently, a few transfers rumors have been circulating on the social media. Some of them are discussed below.
Top 5 Transfer Targets of Barcelona
Thiago Alcantara, a former Barca prodigy, left the Blaugranas in 2013 for FC Bayern Munich. He excelled there as a central midfielder and become a constant member of their starting XI. Now finally the club is thinking about letting him go due because of the emergence of James Rodriguez. With Thiago himself wanting to move back to his former club and Barca in need of someone to replace Iniesta, the move seems very possible and sensible on behalf of both the player and the club.
Football club Barcelona has shown quite an interest in this Bosnian Midfielder, currently playing for FC Juventus. The 28-year midfielder is quite an impressive player in his position and a club like Barcelona can use his skills and talent in their squad. He has the exposure to play in UEFA Champions League final for Juventus football club. He has also played for AS Roma in the past as well a Lyon and Metz in the French league too. Barcelona’s rival club Real Madrid has also shown interest in signing this talented midfielder, but recently, reports of Juventus presenting Pjanić with a very good contract has emerged which might put a dent in FC Barcelona’s effort.
Former Ajax Fc player who currently plays for English club Tottenham Hotspurs is an absolutely great option for Barcelona to sign this year as he is in great form, he is young and he is exactly what FC Barcelona needs right now. He has great skills like ball control and playmaking and he is an amazing Goal-scorer too. If the right price is offered, there is a huge possibility that Eriksen might end up being Barca boy.
An experienced youngster who can play a variety of role for the club when in need. Adrien Rabiot started playing for Paris Saint Germain in 2012 and has played more than 200 games for them. He has been chosen in the French squad for the world cup as well. This Central Midfielder can play as a defending midfielder too. Sergio Busquets isn’t getting any younger, what better option to replace him than Rabiot? Barca has shown interest in him according to some sources. Let’s see how it turns out.
Another Frenchman who has been on Barcelona’s transfer window radar since the last season began. Antoine Griezmann has been the face of Atletico Madrid for quite some time and it would be hard for FC Barcelona to snatch him from Atletico Madrid. According to some recent rumors, Griezmann did show some interest in joining the Catalan side. He is Barcelona’s number one priority in the upcoming transfer window.
