Catalan giants Fc Barcelona will dig into January transfer window to secure a player that can fill the vacant role in the attacking ranks which have been there since Neymar makes a world-record move to Paris Saint-Germaine in the summer.
Following Neymar’s departure, the Blaugrana have been deficient in the left flank of the attack. Since the start of the season, the connection between Iniesta and Messi has been lost, in light of the fact that the already ever-present Neymar chose to move to Paris Saint-Germain.
A couple of months into the season, Barcelona are feeling the loss of a player like Neymar in the team. He has something which no other player in the squad can offer to Valverde.
Much reason Barcelona want to secure the services of an astonishing player in January. In spite of the fact that Barcelona might be at the top of the La Liga table, which has calm nerves at the Camp Nou, Valverde stays unconvinced with the team’s attacking prowess so far
The club knows they have to sign a few fortifications to keep their great form going in final and an unequivocal part of the season when fatigue begins to influence the players with the most minutes.
Philippe Coutinho is the ultimate player to fill the void left by Neymar for Barcelona. As indicated by Spanish publication ‘Marca’, Barca keeps on monitoring the developments of the Liverpool star closely.
In spite of the fact that the 25-year-old wouldn’t be able to play in the Champions League for the Spanish outfit given that he has officially played for the Premier League side, he would be a perfect signing for whatever is left of the league season.
Coutinho is the perfect attacking player, fit for playing in several positions, moving unreservedly in the zone and offering the vital pass to alternate forward. Barca needs him and he needs Barca, as he showed the previous summer. That being stated, Valverde will have to pay no less than 120 million euros to secure Coutinho’s signature.
Nonetheless, the Liverpool playmaker isn’t the only player on the transfer list of things to get of the forces that be at the Camp Nou. Lyon’s attacking midfielder, Nabil Fekir, has likewise pulled interest from the Catalan giants, Germany internationals Leon Goretzka, Max Meyer from Schalke and Arsenal Mesut Ozil, as indicated by the previously mentioned source.
Former Real Madrid stars Angel di Maria and Mesut Ozil, two top class players with enough experience to wear the Barcelona shirt. The Barcelona transfer list of things to get is unquestionably brimming with names who could fit the bill.
