Always looking for the rare pearl to strengthen its attack, FC Barcelona multiplies the tracks and the last one leads to England, more precisely to Arsenal.
Even if it hasn’t been in the Champions League for a long time, with this surprising elimination from the group stage, FC Barcelona will experience a turbulent end to the 2021-2022 season. Third in La Liga with twelve points behind (but one game less) on the leader, Real Madrid, the Catalan club must in particular stay in the top 4 to obtain its ticket for the next C1 campaign. But above all there is this Europa League to be played with quarter-finals against Eintracht Frankfurt in a few days. Because to remain attractive this summer on the summer transfer window, the Blaugranas obviously hope to be European during the next exercise.
In the meantime, the Barcelona leaders are active behind the scenes to prepare for this new transfer window and further strengthen the workforce. Everyone knows it, President Joan Laporta and his teams dream of Erling Haaland, Robert Lewandowski or even Mohamed Salah, but Barça must plan for a cheaper and more affordable plan. And precisely, the Spanish team seems to have found the perfect target not to ruin themselves in a few months and bring a new quality player to Xavi Hernandez. Because according to information from SPORTthe FCB is very interested in a certain Alexandre Lacazette!
The Lacazette-Aubameyang duo reformed?
At the end of the contract in a few months on the side of Arsenal, the French center-forward seems closer to a departure than an extension on the side of the Emirates Stadium, and FC Barcelona intends to take advantage of it. The Spanish media affirms that the Blaugranas are monitoring the situation of the former Gone, also tracked by his former training for a possible return, and that his arrival could do good for the club since his transfer would not be expensive with his status as free player. And if the leaders ever want to convince the 30-year-old to come, they have an asset.
In the event of arrival in Catalonia, Alexandre Lacazette would thus find his former teammate in London Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who arrived at the end of the winter transfer window. Author of six goals and eight assists this season in 29 appearances in all competitions, the Frenchman is in any case going through a complicated exercise for his probable last season with the Gunners. And after having evolved in France and therefore in England, the Lyonnais by birth could discover a new country and a new culture this summer. Unless OL win the day or a surprise extension comes out of the hat.
