The FC Barcelona has the feeling that Ousmane Dembélé will leave of the Barcelona team to final of season, although it still has not communicated at all to the club, reason by which have lit his radar in the research of a player that can suplir to the French in this position and have fixed in Raphinha, extreme of the Leeds United.

From this Monday has come informing that the Barça sees it like one of his big priorities of face to the market of signings veraniego and that the player, besides, would be interested in recalar in the Camp Nou in July. The Barcelona, by his part, carry months following it closely and are impressed with the potential of the footballer, the one who has been one of the few 'rescatables' of a Leeds that wants to avoid the descent in this season.

In this course has exploded his facet goleadora, with nine so many in his personal account in 28 parties. All has annotated them in the Premier League. The Barça is loved with his profile and would be the attendant of 'replace' to Dembouz.

It has showed to be an extreme with a lot of speed and is lethal in the one against one, in addition to having a big capacity to finalise played with his good strike with the left-handed leg.

Likewise, in the Premier League has impressed to teams like Chelsea, that also is interested in his signing, for playing very open and concede amplitude to the team, being also a player very 'tactical' that bets for being the one who initiate the high pressure when his lose the balloon. It contributes a lot of rhythm to the team and looks for to create desborde to generate constant danger in the area, appearances that, obviously, Xavi Hernández and company have taken in account to give green light to his possible signing.

Only it remains to see how it could arrive to the Camp Nou. Has agreement with the Leeds United until the summer of 2024 and already has announced to the club that does not have intentions to extend his stay in the Elland Road and that, besides, would prioritise an offer of the Barça.
