A report has emerged claiming that Barcelona are not planning to slow down in their spending on refreshing their squad and are targeting three AC Milan players.
According to Tuttosport (via PianetaMilan), Barcelona are shopping specifically in Milano and they are keen on several Inter players, namely Milan Škriniar (whose contract expires on 30 June 2023), Alessandro Bastoni, Marcelo Brozović and Lautaro Martínez, as well as even André Onana who came through their La Masia academy.
However, the newspaper add that there are three Rossoneri players who are attracting their interest. The first is seen as a replacement for the ageing Jordi Alba in Theo Hernández, who has previous with Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid and is now established as one of the best in the world in his role. He is valued at €55m by Transfermarkt.
Then, Ismaël Bennacer is also held in high esteem by Barca is also courted by many top clubs in the Premier League, with a valuation of €40m as per TM. The same can be said about Rafael Leão who is also being monitored, with both the Algerian midfielder and the Portuguese forward under contract until June 2024. Leao is worth €85m, per TM.
The Leão idea would disappear if Ansu Fati overcomes the many physical problems he has had in the recent past as they believe in him, but Inter and Milan will have to pay close attention to Barcelona’s ambitions.
