Inhouse report from the Spanish giant shows that Barcelona have not stopped with their Manchester City swoop, as they are currently targeting three additional players after already having signed Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia as free agents to them this season.
It must be noted that the first of these players is Aymeric Laporte. Sources close to us shows that the 27-year-old Spanish National is a very experienced centre-back who has achieved great success with the Cityzens during his stay with them and he is left-footed, meaning that he could fulfill a much-depleted role at the Catalan club if acquired from them,
Football analsyt where able to proof that he has been partially ostracized at City this season, as John Stones and Ruben Dias have been ahead of the former French National in Guardiola’s pecking order at the club.
It is a well known fact that Laporte is a world-class centre-back, and he will certainly be hoping for more playing time than he earned throughout last season. In search of this, he may well be looking for a new club, and Barça could be a premier destination for him to continue to showcase his active skills.
The next in line want from the Cityzen by Barcelona’s is the Brazilian attacking striker Gabriel Jesus. It was noted that the 24-year-old has suffered reduced prominence in City this year and is currently studying offers from other clubs where he feels he will do better if taken.
Although it was noted that having signed Sergio Aguero and Memphis Depay, it is difficult to imagine Joan Laporta and co seriously entertaining the possibility of signing Jesus in the same order of rading.
Sources close to our reporter also states that the final target from City for the Blaugranas is Ilkay Gundogan. The established German national has been totally stellar throughout last season, having registered 17 goals and 5 assists to his name. It was the best season of his professional career yet, and at 30-years-old, he has well and truly entered his prime age of footbal and any tempting offer can bring him to the Spanish club.
Although Georginio Wijnaldum who decided to snub Barça for a move to Paris-Saint Germain instead, the Blaugranas are looking for alternative options in midfield to bring to the Camp Nou for now.
Gundogan may be the best of these options, as he has excelled in a team that plays positional play under Pep Guardiola — a system similar to Barça’s own as well.
Based on skills which analyst where able to prove that Gundogan possesses a high level of dexterity, positional intelligence, and versatility in the field of the game.
