Bayer Leverkusen would reportedly prefer signing 21-year-old Moroccan prodigy Ez Abde from Barcelona during the summer transfer season. According to Foot Mercato, Ez Abde is a major target for Bayer Leverkusen moving into the summer transfer season. The 21-year-old offensive talent could depart Barcelona during the summer transfer window. And a move to the Bundesliga could be in the cards for the left winger.
Bayer Leverkusen shows interest to sign Ez Abde
Abde Ezzalzouli, commonly known as Ez Abde, continues to await for his big chance in Barcelona. Since August 2021, the Moroccan international has been with the Blaugrana. However, after making a few appearances for Barcelona in the 2021/22 season, his value dropped in the second part of the season.
The 21-year-old has been with Osasuna this season and has made significant progress. This season, the teenager has made 31 appearances for Osasuna, contributing six goals and two assists. Abde’s development has not gone unnoticed, with the Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen taking notice.
Under the direction of Xabi Alonso, the German heavyweights have made significant improvement. Even though Bayer Leverkusen will not qualify for the UEFA Champions League, they have showed encouraging improvements in recent months. As a result, the Bundesliga club will support Alonso throughout the summer transfer window. The Bundesliga heavyweights are expected to lose two wingers during the summer transfer window. Callum Hudson-Odoi, who has struggled to establish himself at Bayer Leverkusen this season, will be one of them. However, Alonso and Die Werkself will be more concerned with Moussa Diaby, who has been linked with many Premier League clubs.
Diaby’s departure will leave a huge void in Bayer Leverkusen’s attack. So it’s very likely that the Bundesliga club have set their sights on Ez Abde. According to the source, the 21-year-old Barcelona prospect is a key target for the German club ahead of the summer transfer season. Recent reports have linked Abde to Premier League clubs, casting doubt on his future. However, joining Bayer Leverkusen will be more appealing given that they will compete in Europe next season. It will be exciting to watch if the 21-year-old pushes his way out of Barcelona and into the Bundesliga.
