Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona schedules a summer in which it can complete, at least, a pair of signings of first level to reinforce the staff that now will head Hansi Flick from the Barcelona bench. The entity takes into account that improve the mediocentro and the left extreme could be key to avoid complete a new course without titles, although when seeming does not close to do it only with alternatives of first level.

And it is that to improve the line of attack, the culés have a main list with players of elite like Nico Williams, Luis Díaz and Dani Elm, but are not the only forwards in which it fixes the Barça. Like this it has ensured it the journalist Gerard Romero, ensuring that to the margin of these three operations, all with a lot of security to surpass the 50 million euros, the club also has in his 'radar' to two very young extremes and promising.

The Barça also would think in two extremes that could give the jump to the elite

It treats of Johan Bakayoko (21 years) and Assane Diao (18 years), those who although they are not in a current level with which can compare with the others options mentioned, the Barça consider them like alternatives very valid if it had to move by another type of operations. In the case of Diao, to his 18 years, the Spanish attacker of Senegalese origin comes to have a big irruption in LaLiga the past campaign.

In fact, Assane attained to debut and annotate three so many in his three first parties with the first team of the Real Betis, two of them in League and the another in the Europe League. Between finals of September and beginnings of February was a fixed in the eleven headline of the béticos, losing only a day to the 17 contested in this space of time, with a total of 14 titularities in 16 parties.

A much more similar profile to the of Lamine

Bakayoko, by his part, yes that it is a footballer with a bit more than experience in the maximum level, and also much more 'hype' in the current market. Unlike Diao, that his value of market surpasses by little the 10 millions (12 'kilos'), the Belgian already played in the present Eurocopa with his selection and his price of gone out round the 45 million euros, being a footballer that right now follow varied 'big' of the Premier League.

Formed in the quarry of the PSV, the forward has completed a course of 14 goals and 14 assistances in 48 parties, numbers very interesting, still inside the context of a league of a slightly inferior level like the Eredivisie. The youngster has a very seemed profile to the of Jérémy Doku (Manchester City), although unlike the others four footballers that has the Barça in his list, Bakayoko is left-handed and is used to to situate by the right side of the field, being very similar in his game to Lamine Yamal, by what would be a similar bet to what already occurs with Raphinha, the one who has had to leave his more natural position this season.
