Mercato: Barça has a new target


By: Manu Tournoux

FC Barcelona would be interested in Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz in order to strengthen its squad this winter.

FC Barcelona must absolutely relaunch its 2023-2024 season. Fourth in Liga, 7 points behind the leaders and qualified for the round of 16 of the Champions League, Xavi’s men are struggling to convince in the game and the Spanish technician is far from unanimous. But he could take advantage of the winter transfer window to strengthen his squad in view of the deadlines for the second part of the season.

A Brazilian at Barça?

Vitor Roque (18 years old) has already joined his new team, but the Blaugranas are already preparing the rest of their transfer window. If we are to believe the information from Sport, the Catalan club would be very interested in Douglas Luiz (25 years old), who is contributing greatly to the very good season of Aston Villa (3rd in the Premier League) and whom Deco came to personally supervise in England. But the good performances of the Brazilian international (6 goals, 5 assists this season) have also increased his value, today estimated at 60 million euros per Transfermarkt. The Villans could ask for 40 more.

We will therefore have to put our hands in the wallet to convince Unai Emery to let go of one of his major assets this season. Barça could also see other clubs move forward on the file, notably Arsenal who are closely interested in the former Manchester City player.
