Barcelona may be under severe pressure on the financial front, yet have not allowed the same to affect their hunt for young and upcoming players. The club’s focus on the long-term future is clear, and they continue roping in young sensations, the latest of whom was Vitor Roque.

On the same note, Barcelona have been interested in Lucas Bergvall for a long time now. The Djurgardens IF midfield sensation has been one of world football’s hottest properties for a while now but has always held a special place for Barcelona in his heart.

Close to complete

Fabrizio Romano provides a critical update on Barcelona’s pursuit of the 17-year-old Swedish protege.

Bergvall is already in Barcelona ahead of his official signing with the club and is scheduled to meet with the club leaders, especially Deco, in the coming hours. The offer, worth €7 million plus €3 million in variables was accepted by Djurgardens, as expected.

The journalist adds that the signing is not yet 100% complete, with the final details yet to be agreed upon. However, the club hope to wrap up the formalities this afternoon if everything goes well.

A signing for the summer

Despite reaching an agreement in the current winter transfer window, the Swedish sensation will not join Barcelona in the coming weeks. He will arrive in Catalonia only in the summer, and it remains to be seen if he links up with the senior team or Barça Atletic.

Manchester City, Juventus, Bayern Munich and Eintracht Frankfurt are just some of the numerous big-name clubs the 17-year-old turned down to complete his dream move, and it is safe to say that the Catalans have signed a pearl.

In 25 appearances in the Allsvenskan this season, Bergvall has scored two goals and provided one assist for Djurgardens from midfield. He also averages 0.4 key passes and over six defensive actions per game.
