Barcelona Targets €16 Million La Liga Winger as Potential Replacement for Ferran Torres

Barcelona is still determined to sell Ferran Torres during the upcoming summer transfer window and is aiming to earn approximately €40 million from his transfer.

Torres has not performed as well as expected, and Barcelona, who are in need of financial resources, are looking to sell the 23-year-old attacker along with another Spanish forward, Ansu Fati.

As per Gabriel Sans from Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona plans to pursue the signing of Yannick Carrasco, the winger from Atletico Madrid, if they successfully sell Ferran Torres this summer.

Barcelona ideally wants to acquire a forward who can play in various positions across the frontline, similar to Torres, and they view Carrasco as a suitable alternative.

Carrasco, the 29-year-old Belgian international, is in the last year of his contract with Atletico Madrid. In January, Barcelona obtained a purchase option for €16 million as part of the agreement that brought Memphis Depay to the club from the Wanda Metropolitano.

While Yannick Carrasco may not be Barcelona’s top priority at the moment, he does possess qualities that could be valuable to the team. He has the ability to create imbalances on the flanks and contribute goals, as demonstrated by his ten goals in various competitions during the 2022/23 season.

Carrasco brings a wealth of experience to the table and exhibits skill in controlling the ball. Additionally, he is willing to put in defensive efforts, which adds to his appeal as a prospect for Barcelona.

Although initial reports indicated that Barcelona’s interest in Yannick Carrasco was diminishing, the situation may not be as definitive. If Barcelona manages to sell Ferran Torres during the summer, there is a possibility that they could pursue Carrasco as a replacement.

However, Barcelona might seek to negotiate the price tag of €16 million and aim to reach a lower fee agreement with Atletico Madrid for Carrasco’s transfer.
