Barcelona eyeing Everton midfielder Amadou Onana

As per reports from Spanish outlet Sport, Barcelona‘s sporting director, Deco, has pinpointed Onana as their top priority for the upcoming summer transfer window.

Amadou Onana

boasts an impressive record, having participated in 60 matches for Everton, where he showcased his versatility by netting 3 goals and providing 3 crucial assists. Additionally, he has also represented Belgium in 9 international fixtures, further solidifying his standing as a promising talent on the global stage.

It’s suggested that Barcelona has devised two distinct transfer strategies: firstly, to alleviate the burden on their young players within the squad, and secondly, to bolster their defensive and midfield departments with more robust options, a role perfectly suited for Onana.

Standing tall at 6ft4, Onana cuts an imposing figure on the field. Despite his stature, he possesses surprising agility and speed, complemented by astute defensive instincts that make him an asset in the midfield.

At just 22 years old, Onana is still in the nascent stages of his career, with ample room for growth and development. Consequently, it comes as no surprise that several of Europe’s elite clubs are vying for his signature, recognizing his potential to make a significant impact at the highest level.

However, Barcelona’s financial constraints may pose a hurdle in their pursuit of Onana. With a budget limited to 40 million euros for summer acquisitions, they find themselves at odds with Everton’s valuation of the player, which reportedly hovers around 80-85 million euros.

This significant disparity in valuation could potentially complicate negotiations between the two clubs, raising questions about Barcelona’s ability to secure Onana’s services within their allocated budgetary constraints.


Nevertheless, Barcelona remains undeterred in their pursuit of the talented midfielder, as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of the upcoming campaign. Whether they can navigate the financial obstacles and strike a deal with Everton for Onana’s transfer remains to be seen, but one thing is certain: his acquisition would undoubtedly bolster Barcelona’s midfield and enhance their prospects for success in the seasons to come.
