According to the Spanish Outlet, Mundo Deportivo, Ilkay Gundogan has emerged as one of Barcelona’s transfer targets in the January transfer window as the experienced Man City player’s contract is up in the air as he edges closer to running down the entirety of his contract, and La Blaugrana find it a good transfer opportunity.

The Premier League veteran wouldn’t cost much since he is 32 years old but will provide much-needed stability and experience to the young robust midfielders of FC Barcelona.

He can also play as a CDM, which Barcelona are avidly looking out for as it remains one of their priorities. He’s a quality player for his age and can provide a lot to this team, especially when Busquets is not at his best.

Even in the summer Transfer window, the backup to the ‘surprise signing’ Bernardo Silva was Ilkay Gundogan, but the lack of any departures meant there wasn’t enough space to accommodate him while adhering to the FFP regulations.

The 32-year-old midfielder has played 12 matches for Pep Guardiola’s side this season, scoring twice and bagging 2 assists. He has also generated an xG of 2.46 and created 23 chances for his teammates.

His recruitment could prove vital, as he still has the quality to remain at the top flight. Given the meagre financial package that will be required to pen him down for a couple of years makes it a win-win situation for the for both parties involved.
