Barcelona youngster Pablo Torre has not had the most productive of the debut seasons at the club. Having arrived from Racing Santander in the summer of last year, by snubbing Real Madrid, the 20-year-old midfielder has played just 12 times for the first team across all competitions.
Torre had to wait until the final phase of the season to make his first start in La Liga when he featured from the kick-off against Real Valladolid earlier this month.
Despite Barcelona having had to contend with the prolonged absence of Pedri, manager Xavi Hernandez did not count on the Spaniard much.
And with Ilkay Gundogan and Lionel Messi in the transfer plans for the summer, the Blaugrana are hoping to loan Torre out in the summer.
Amidst this, Gerard Romero is reporting that the midfield prospect is attracting interest from clubs in the Netherlands.
Ideally, the Blaugrana would prefer to loan Torre out to a club in the Spanish first division so that he can garner valuable experience playing regular La Liga football.
And, there has been interest from teams such as Villarreal, among others.
But, if such a move does not materialise, Torre will have options from the Netherlands, although it is unclear as to which clubs from the Eredivisie are interested in his services at the moment.
Torre, for his part, wishes to stay put at Barcelona and continue to fight for his place in Xavi’s team. But, as things stand, such a scenario seems unlikely and a temporary move away could be the best option for him and the club.
There have also been talks about the La Liga champions selling him permanently with a buyback clause inserted.
All signs point towards Torre leaving Barcelona on loan in the summer and only time will tell where the 20-year-old ends up.
