At this point, it is a well-known fact that Barcelona are keen on signing a new, prolific striker in the summer transfer window. The Blaugrana are intent on landing a marquee attacker who can be the face of the rebuild under Xavi Hernandez and have been long linked with Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Haaland.
Sergio Busquets has been in top form of late and has been an integral figure in Barcelona’s revival under Xavi Hernandez. While the veteran star is still going strong, he is at the stage of his career where his game-time needs to be managed carefully.
It is no news that Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona need to sign a proper defender this summer to bolster their ranks. The Catalan giants are now well-packed in attack following their January winter transfer window business, while also having a solid midfield to compliment it. However, they have been too vulnerable in defense and they have been tipped to sign proven defenders to strengthen their back line, something they look to have turned to.
The Camp Nou outfit are set for a major defensive overhaul in the upcoming transfer window, with left-back one of the main areas of focus for the club. As things stand, the Blaugrana have Jordi Alba as their first-choice left-back with no other senior player to cover for him. Alejandro Balde has not been called upon much by manager Xavi Hernandez and there is a possibility that he could be loaned out next season.
