Barcelona Transfer Targets 2020: Top 5
5. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Arsenal made no secret of the fact that they want to sign him back in January. A deal was even close before it collapsed from both ends. Arsenal obviously do not want to sell him but might be forced to do so to balance their books while from Auba’s point of view, he needs a boost to a club who can silverware right away given his rich vein of form right now.
Barcelona have once again earmarked him as the goal getter for next season in a team which clearly lacks firepower up front to compliment Lionel Messi.
4. Kalidou Koulibaly: Defensive Barcelona Transfer Targets
Koulibaly is a strong and big centre-back who plays for Napoli.
The Senegalese centre-back has been heralded as one of the top centre-backs in world football in recent seasons. Furthermore, he has been part of a great Napoli team that tend to play the ball out from the back. This is a quality much needed in the Barcelona defence.
The 29-year-old has played 38 times this season (in all competitions) and has scored three goals. That’s not bad for a defender. He could become of the most expensive Barcelona signings though as Barca tried to sign him in the past and were quoted £100 million by Napoli according to reports.
3. Lautaro Martinez
The Inter Milan striker has been on fire this season. Hailing from Argentina, the Serie A striker has been really good this season. He has scored goals and looked like the real deal at this early age for the team.
He has attracted attention from Barcelona who are keen to bolster their attack this season. Luis Suarez is getting old and Barcelona are looking at young replacements for him.
Martinez has also been praised by Messi, which is an important stamp of approval for anyone joining Barcelona.
“He has impressive qualities. You could tell he was going to be a great player and he is showing that.
“He’s very strong, really good one on one, scores a lot of goals and in the area he fights with anyone, holds it up, he can turn, scrap to win it all on his own. He has a lot of quality. He’s very complete.”
His agent Alberto Yaque has also tipped him to move last summer.
“Talk of Barcelona’s interest is true.
“No one’s called us, but we know that they’ve been looking at him strongly. It’s true that Barcelona like him.”
2. Bernardo Silva
Barcelona are behind Manchester City’s midfielder Bernardo Silva and are thinking of making a hard to refuse offer. Silva has impressed in Manchester City since he joined the Cityzens in 2017, but of late has been left out of the starting 11 quite a few times. Silva made only 23 appearances in the 2019-20 campaign.
Barcelona want to offer a guaranteed position in the squad – a key position – in order to make Silva agree to the move. The Blaugrana want to make a player and cash offer, which will include exchanging Nelson Semedo for Silva.
1. Neymar: Top Barcelona Transfer Targets
The Catalan club have a long history with him. Neymar first played for Barcelona back in 2013. He was a talented star at Santos. He was being scouted by multiple teams from all across the world. Neymar was a star tipped to become the best.
It was Barcelona who won the race to his signature and at Nou Camp there was sheer joy watching Neymar on the left flank and Lionel Messi on the right. Add Suarez in the middle and the MSN trio wreaked havoc.
However, as famously the story goes, Neymar wanted individual glory and left for PSG with a world record move. The fee paid was astronomical. At PSG, things started nicely with Neymar being treated like a God.
However, their patience with the ill-disciplined star soon ran down as Neymar was often missing matches or not performing well.
Finally, Neymar was called out by the PSG board after the player broke down and publicly declared he wanted to return to Barcelona. PSG played the villain as they withheld the move and stopped Barca from resigning Neymar in the summer.
Barca for their bit did hold back a bit of grudge and now it seems the situation is as complicated as ever. However, at Barca, Neymar still has the blessing of Messi and hence we might see the Catalan club pull out all stops in the winter window in 2020 to sign the Brazilian superstar.
