Barca News Round-up: 2 January 2023

Barca News Round-up

Barca News Network brings you today’s latest Barca News round-up including competition for Ounahi, the hunt for the Right Back position, Torres’ future, reported changes in the team for the Intercity match, and an injury update on Nico Gonzalez.

Barcelona Linked World Cup Star Receives Offer from the Premier League:

Azzedine Ounahi was one of the breakout stars in the last FIFA World Cup, as he led his Morocco side to a surprising semi-final round appearance. As a result, a number of big European clubs are interested in his services, including FC Barcelona.

However, the Catalan club has been overtaken by Leicester City in the race to sign the midfielder, as the English club has already submitted a transfer offer of £25 million.

Four Names Being Considered for Right Back Position:

Ever since the departure of Dani Alves, Barcelona have found it difficult to find a reliable player for their right-back position, which still remains a weak link in the team. The club has now turned their attention to four players, who they believe can strengthen the team in this area. These players are Diogo Dalot, Juan Foyth, Thomas Meunier and Benjamin Pavard.

Offer Received for Ferran Torres:

Recent reports from Fichajes suggested that the club’s patience with Ferran Torres is fast receding, and the Blaugranes are open to a transfer for the Spaniard. One offer for Torres has already arrived from London, as Tottenham has put forward a €35 million offer to sign the winger.

Inaki Pena to Make a Start in the Goal in Copa Clash:

Ter Stegen’s amazing performances in the goal have made it difficult for any other of the club’s goalkeepers to get any game time. However, Xavi is considering giving a start to the La Masia product, Inaki Pena, in the game against Intercity in Copa del Rey.

Nico Gonzalez Out for Two Months:

Barcelona loanee Nico Gonzalez got a metatarsal injury to his left foot, as he was stomped upon by Raul Albiol, in the match between Valencia and Villareal. The La Masia graduate has made 13 league appearances for Valencia this season, and his absence will certainly be felt by the club as a hectic league schedule beckons.
