Barcelona keen to sign Frenchman at affordable transfer price also contains similar quality of play as compared to top players.
Everyone knows about higher age Barcelona squad. Due to which some of the players are on the way of retirement age. Also, some are set to leave the club.
However, Barcelona targeted many top names in this transfer window. But at the present stage, it seems like Barcelona will not be able to sign their top priority signings Martinez & Neymar. Due to their higher wages and transfer fee.
Catalans would target some young prospects
Neymar & Martinez require higher funds to sign. Therefore, the Camp Nou side will search for another hot prospect from the transfer market. Also, they will look to the different club’s young prodigies.
Moreover, they will try to get Jadon Sancho, Moussa Dembele, Marcel Sabitzer & Wilfried Zaha. Hence, these players will remain as the long term asset in the replacement of Luis Suarez.
Because Luis Suarez in present, he is 33 years old and had the Barcelona contract till next season end. So Barcelona requires the player who will perfectly fulfill his place. As reports from the mirror claim that Suarez is moving to Inter Milan after his contract ends with Catalans.
Must sign player from France
Therefore, as a replacement of Luis Suarez at the center-forward position and cheaper option than Neymar & Martinez. Barcelona will opt to sign the French center forward Moussa Dembele.
Moussa Dembele had done a brilliant piece of performance in the previous season. Played more games for Lyon since the signing two years before.
As a result, he appeared for 94 games in total for Lyon after signing him in the 2018-19 season. Including the qualification for UCL round of 16 stages and fixture held against the Juventus.
Dembele scored 16 goals with chanting 2 assists in 27 arrivals for Lyon in Ligue 1. Including Coupe de France, Coupe de La Ligue & Champions League he had added 6 goals and 5 assist to his stats till now.
Advantages of signing Moussa Dembele
Quique Setien & company will be beneficial after the deal of Moussa Dembele. However, Dembele is available for only £40m. Hence, he is cheaper than the other top player’s transfer fees.
If Barcelona succeeded to sign Moussa Dembele then it will much better move than the other. As completing his deal will help Catalans to balance their fund books.
Therefore they will remain with ample amount balance for signing other players for different positions. For example, there is a need in defense because Catalans conceded 37 goals in La Liga. Henceforth, it will be worth a move for Barcelona.
