Barcelona just completed one of the busiest summer transfer windows in recent times. Players like Lewandowski, Raphinha, Kounde, Kessie, and Christensen were all brought in. Needless to say, the club’s recent transfers include some outstanding players on a free deal.
Eric Garcia, Memphis Depay, was signed for free in the summer of 2021. At the same time, Aubameyang was brought in for free in January 2022 from Arsenal. Aubameyang was a quick success. He scored vital goals to help FC Barcelona finish second in the league. Memphis also played an essential part last season. At the same time, Eric Garcia is an excellent investment for the future and present.
Last summer, the club signed Christensen and Kessie on free deals. Both are incredible players. Christensen has proved to be a top defender in the matches he has played, while Kessie brings physicality to the midfield, something the Catalans do not have.
Ahead of next summer, the board has again identified several players that they can pursue as free agents.
Barcelona has several free agents as potential transfer targets
The free agents’ list is a long one. The club has shown interest in the Chelsea midfield duo of Jorginho and N’golo Kante. Both the players’ contract runs down next summer. The Chelsea board is unclear if they would pursue another renewal for the players.
On the other hand, Barcelona needs a replacement for the outgoing Busquets. Busquets has previously hinted at a possible exit from the club next summer. In that case, the club needs a like-to-like player to replace Sergio in the pivot position. The players are different from each other but can play the role well.
Another young player Youssoufa Moukoko is out of contract next summer. The 17-year-old striker is an academy graduate of Borussia Dortmund. Mundo Deportivo reported that Barcelona is considering making a move for the youngster as a replacement for Lewandowski in the future. Moukoko is one of the most talented young strikers in Europe. His pace, link-up play, and movement off the ball are qualities that the club is looking for. Borussia has not been able to tie the player down to a new contract, and the future remains in the air.
