Barcelona have been rocked by the injury of Gavi and the club are yet to come out with a comprehensive plan to replace the Spaniard, as we approach the January transfer window.
The Catalans have been linked with a few names in the market, but it remains unlikely that the club would look to make any moves in the winter market.
Barcelona eyeing German market for reinforcements
A recent report from Diario AS has offered a detailed update on Barcelona’s search for midfield reinforcements, especially after the injury of Gavi.
As per the report, Barça consider Gavi an ‘irreplaceable’ player and they believe that the options available in the winter market are not satisfying enough.
However, the highlight of the report is that Barcelona are eyeing the German market, in their bid to reinforce their ranks in the middle of the park.
While Joshua Kimmich is undoubtedly a top target for Barça next summer, the club are open to other options available in the Bundesliga.
Barcelona scheduled to meet several agents
The report adds that Barcelona are expected to meet agents of several Bundesliga stars in the coming future.
Through these scheduled meetings, the club are looking to better evaluate the German Bundesliga and the players they could potentially target in the coming summer.
Under the leadership of Deco, the Blaugrana have carefully scouted young players across the Globe and put emphasis on the pursuits of these stars.
While the report has failed to mention any Bundesliga stars Barcelona are targeting other than Joshua Kimmich, there are no shortage of options for the club.
Florian Wirtz, Leon Goretzka and Dani Olmo are among the finest options available in the German market, with the former even being a subject of interest from Barcelona for a long time now.
