According to Marca, Barcelona are reportedly interested in signing Real Sociedad striker Willian Jose as Luis Suarez long term replacements. The 28-year-old is highly rated and considered one of the finest exports from Brazil.
With Luis Suarez finally sealing his move to Atletico Madrid and the transfer fee for Lautaro Martinez and Memphis Depay proving too difficult for Barcelona to pay, signing William Jose looks like the best alternative for the cash strapped club.
The attacker though have a hefty £64m release clause but Real Sociedad are willing to take £28m for the striker who have scored 56 goals with 14 assists in 149 appearances since he joined the club back in 2016.
Marca further revealed that Barcelona have reached an agreement to sign Ajax’s highly rated star Sergino Dest. The right back will join Barcelona’s in a £25m deal and sign a five year contract worth £65,000-a-week. He will replace Nelson Semedo who recently joined Wolves in a £37m deal.
Barcelona could finally end Dele Alli’s nightmare at Tottenham Hotspur by signing him on a season loan deal ahead of PSG. Alli will be very much interested in joining Barcelona and playing close to Lionel Messi who he rates hugely.
If he plays well at Barcelona, he will be signed permanently.
