Barcelona might be in a rush to sign a few players in the ongoing January transfer window. But the club are also keeping tabs on the upcoming summer transfer window, which could be a significant one for the club.
According to Mundo Deportivo, one player Barcelona are keeping an eye on is Daichi Kamada. The Catalans have contacted Eintracht Frankfurt, enquiring about the Japanese international, who is regarded as one of the best playmakers in the Bundesliga.
Although Barça are not expected to make a move anytime soon, they are keeping tabs on the player’s situation at Eintracht.
A part of the Eintracht side since 2017, Kamada has racked up 156 competitive appearances during his time in Germany. He has scored 36 times while mustering 30 assists, helping the Eagles establish themselves as one of the best teams in Germany.
However, Kamada’s future does not appear to be in Frankfurt as the playmaker is yet to renew his contract which expires at the end of the season. Eintracht have taken his departure for granted, meaning the player could leave for free in the coming summer.
Barcelona have taken note of this situation and may make a move for the Japanese international at the end of the season. His status as a free agent could bode well for the Catalans’ financial policy.
However, Barça are expected to face stiff competition in the race to sign Kamada. As per the report, Borussia Dortmund were in talks with the playmaker over a move to Signal Iduna Park, and the Germans may only intensify their pursuit in the summer, especially with Jude Bellingham facing an uncertain future at the club.
Kamada, for his part, has remained quiet about his future and is not expected to make a definite decision until the end of the season.
