FC Barcelona continue their hunt for reinforcements over the summer transfer window. and maintain a special emphasis on acquiring young talents or free acquisitions. Courtesy of the restrictions imposed due to the regulations of Financial Fair Play, Barcelona are quite limited in the amount of expenditure they are allowed to allocate towards signings.

The Catalans thus hope to target younger, upcoming talents that are yet to cement their names amongst the lists of the European elite. The transfer of Pedri, for instance, was shrewd business on Barcelona’s behalf, allowing them to capture the services of a global star and now renowned prodigy without much competition from other suitors.

La Blaugrana have thus set their eyes on another upcoming talent, who currently plies his trade at Fenerbahce in the Turkish Super League as per the reports from Toni Juanmarti and Matteo Moretto from RELEVO. The left-footed Turkish player can operate both as a right winger and an attacking playmaker, courtesy of his strong ball-holding, spatial awareness, and vision.

Donning Fenerbahce’s fabled number 10, he has already made 2 outings with the senior Turkish men’s National Team, despite his tender age of 18. The player has 4 goals and 3 assists thus far this season, and will arguably go on to showcase much more importance as his appearances in a Fenerbahce shirt continue to increase.

His talents have not gone unnoticed altogether consequently, with the likes of Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, and Liverpool also interested in the player’s development. At the Catalan club, the higher-ups seem to be in agreement regarding the player’s talents.

However, the primary issue that exists alongside the obvious interest from the club is Fenerbahce’s asking price of €20 million, with the player’s contract running until June 30, 2025. Despite this obvious hurdle, reports suggest Barcelona are still willing to fight to attain his services in the near future, with the club attempting to stay in compliance with Financial Fair Play simultaneously.
