Barcelona are one of the many admirers of Everton midfielder Amadou Onana and if a report from Mundo Deportivo is to be believed, the Blaugrana are set to face off with Bayern Munich in their attempt to sign the Premier League player.

It is no secret that Barcelona are on a quest for midfield reinforcement as they gear up for the upcoming season. 

Among the array of potential signings, one name stands out prominently: Onana, the 22-year-old Belgian international currently making waves at Everton. 

However, Barcelona are not the only club eyeing Onana as his stellar performances have drawn interest from several quarters.

At the forefront of potential suitors are Bayern Munich. The German giants, also in search of midfield talent for the next campaign, have reportedly earmarked him as a prime target. 

According to the aforementioned outlet, Bayern admire Onana’s potential and physical prowess, seeing him as a valuable addition to their roster.

Oh, but the hurdle

While Barcelona continue face their own set of problems in pursuit of Onana, Bayern’s attempt has a hurdle in the form of an unsettled coaching situation.

With uncertainty lingering over who will succeed Thomas Tuchel, Bayern’s transfer activities have hit a standstill.

This deadlock in the coaching realm could play into Barcelona’s hands, potentially giving them a slight edge in the race for Onana’s signature.

Onana has attracted serious interest

Despite his contract with Everton running until 2027, Onana finds himself at a crossroads with numerous opportunities for a change of scenery come summer.

The starting price for securing his services is estimated to hover around the €60 million mark.

In summary, Barcelona’s interest in bolstering their midfield is palpable, with Onana emerging as a top target. While Bayern Munich also vie for his talents, internal uncertainties may tip the scales slightly in Barcelona’s favour. 

As the player’s future hangs in the balance, the summer transfer window promises to be an intriguing affair for both clubs vying for his services.
