Barcelona has had a difficult start to the season and will require reinforcements in January. Ronald Koeman’s arrival at the club could be delayed until the end of the transfer window. Joan Laporta, on the other hand, needs to acquire players because the current Barcelona squad is not capable of winning trophies. Barcelona may not be able to spend heavily due to their financial difficulties. To balance their books while also making the roster more competitive, they will have to target players on loan or at a discount. On that note, here are five players Barcelona should target in January:
#5 Lorenzo Insigne Udinese Calcio vs SSC Napoli – Serie A
Lorenzo Insigne’s contract is about to expire, so Barcelona must move quickly. The Napoli midfielder has less than a year left on his contract and would be an excellent addition to the Blaugrana.
In attack, Barcelona needs pace and experience, which Lorenzo Insigne can provide. Ansu Fati and Memphis Depay are both capable attackers, but they may not be able to carry the attack alone.
The Barcelona duo requires assistance, and Lorenzo Insigne could provide it. Memphis Depay would be able to play centrally with Insigne’s arrival. That would put Luuk De Jong on the bench, who hasn’t been very good for Barcelona.
“I only think about playing and about the pitch,” Insigne said of his contract situation. The rest is taken care of by my agent. I always prioritize the team over myself. I always put in a lot of effort and always arrive with a smile on my face. I’m not considering the contract. There’s still time to talk to the club about it. My agent will handle the situation with the club. I still have a year left. “#4 Niklas Sule FC Bayern München vs Dinamo Kiev: Group E – UEFA Champions League
Eric Garcia’s signing has not been as successful as Barcelona had hoped. As a result, they’ll need to hire a defender in January. Niklas Süle’s contract is coming to an end, and he could be available for a bargain.
Normаlly, Bаyer Munich does not let their plаyers leаve for free. Sule, on the other hаnd, is not close to signing а new contrаct with the Bundesligа club, so Bаrcelonа must seize the opportunity.
The signing of Sule would аdd experience to the bаck line while аlso аllowing Eric Gаrciа to tаke some time off before tаking over from Gerаrd Pique.
