Ronald Koeman has reportedly drawn out a list of players he wants Barcelona to sign this summer. The dutch tactician is desperate to revamp Barcelona’s aging and depleted squad who can no longer compete and win the La Liga title or contest the Champions League against the best teams in Europe.
Koeman wants at least seven players this summer but Barcelona don’t have the funds to sign all the players he wants and therefore restricted the number to just 4.
Sadio Mane- According to Marca, Ronald Koeman has expressively asked Barcelona to sign Liverpool superstar Sadio Mane who is without doubt, a world class left forward. Koeman feels the Senegalese who he once coached at Southampton for two years has what it takes to improve Barcelona and offer them some serious fire power going forward.
Memphis Depay– Lyon striker Memphis Depay could be heading to Barcelona this summer to link up with his former national manager Ronald Koeman. Depay is in close contact with Koeman and could join the club this summer if Barcelona pay his $17m asking price.
Gini Wijnaludm- Barcelona are reportedly closing in on signing Liverpool’s star Gini Wijnaldum. The midfield maestro is yet to agree a contract extension with Liverpool and will leave for free in June. But rather leave for free, Liverpool are willing to sell the 29-year-old to Barcelona for $24 in other not run at a loss.
N’Golo Kante– Ronald Koeman is reportedly interested in working with N’Golo Kante and has asked Barcelona to sign the world lass midfield enforcer. Koeman wants Kante to replace Sergio Busquet who no longer have the legs or energy to cover grounds.
Kante physicality, robust tacking, interceptions as well as attacking runs will take Barcelona to a whole new level.
Dayot Upamecano– According to Marca, Barcelona are among the numerous clubs interested in signing France and RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamencao. The 21-year-old posses the potential to become a world class defender and Barcelona are hoping he lines up for them next season and not their major competitor Real Madrid.
Upamecano is a boyhood fan of Barcelona and could be swayed to join the club now that Lionel Messi has decided to stay.
