Who will sign Barcelona this summer? LaLiga club transfer targets


AS understands that Barcelona believe they need to strengthen their squad with seven summer signings – unless Frenkie de Jong leaves the club, It is. If the Dutchman moves on, the La Liga giants are reportedly looking to sign nine players.

Here is the list of Barcelona’s summer races:

Andreas Christensen, Chelsea, defender

– deal concluded

Chelsea centre-back Christensen, 26, is set to join Barca on a free transfer this summer. The Danish international will sign a four-year contract worth five million euros per year. Barca’s behind-the-scenes team believe Christensen’s arrival will strengthen the defense both physically and in terms of the team’s ability to get the ball out from behind. He will be a huge improvement on Clement Lenglet.

Franck Kessie, AC Milan, midfielder

– deal concluded

Kessié, 25, from AC Milan, will also travel to Camp Nou for free, signing a four-year contract that includes an annual salary of six million euros. A box-to-box midfielder with an eye for goal, he is seen as a player who will bring something different to the Blaugrana’s options in the engine room. Several club coaches believe he will be one of next season’s revelations.

César Azpilicueta, Chelsea, defender

Barça’s main target on the right flank. The club admires the Chelsea captain not only for his abilities but also for his leadership. The 32-year-old has agreed an agreement with Barca to join on a free transfer on a three-year contract, but there are still important details to be ironed out with the defender’s current club. He had gotten word from Chelsea that the West Londoners would not trigger an automatic 12-month extension, but the change in ownership could affect that.

Marcos Alonso, Chelsea, defender

In an effort to ease Jordi Alba’s burden, Barcelona want to add to their left-back options by bringing in Alonso from Chelsea, 31 years. He is under contract at Stamford Bridge until 2023, so Barça would have to negotiate his departure with the Blues. The main factor working in the Catalans’ favor is that Alonso is eager to leave Chelsea and has already made it known that he won’t be renewing his contract.

Raphinha, winger, Leeds United

The Leeds United left winger, 25, is top of Barcelona’s shopping list as they try to bolster their full-scale attacking options. His arrival isn’t affected by whether Ousmane Dembele stays at Camp Nou or not. Barca are waiting to see whether or not Leeds are relegated from the Premier League as that would trigger a €25m release clause. His agent, former Barca star Deco, is a crucial influence on the deal.

Jules Koundé, Sevilla, defender

The Sevilla centre-back is Barcelona’s main defensive target. The club have made an initial bid for the 23-year-old – one that would see Barca play €20m and send Sergiño Dest and Lenglet in the opposite direction. Dest is a player that Sevilla sporting director Monchi is very fond of. Barca’s plan B would be to move for Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly.

Martín Zubimendi, Real Sociedad, midfielder

If Frenkie de Jong leaves Barcelona, ​​Real Sociedad midfielder Zubimendi, 23, has been identified as a player who can replace Sergio Busquets at the base of midfield. Zubimendi has a contract at San Sebastian until 2025, so Barca should negotiate with La Real.

Carlos Soler, Valencia, midfielder

Valencia’s Spanish international midfielder is a player Xavi particularly admires. He’s under contract at Mestalla until 2023. If De Jong leaves this summer, the club will do everything possible to sign Soler.

Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich, striker

from Bayern Munich Lewandowski33, would be a dream signing for Barca, the cornerstone of Xavi’s project and an attacking focal point whose presence would take the quality of the team to another level. An agreement is in place with the Polish striker on a three-year contract, but Bayern are unwilling to negotiate.
