Barca eyeing Alaba and Aguero

Barcelona reportedly eyeing Bosman transfers for Alaba and legendary no.9

The Catalan giants are short on cash due to COVID but are still keen on strengthening their squad this summer.

Barcelona are said to be eyeing two Bosman transfers this summer in a bid to strengthen their squad for next season. This is according to Mundo Deportivo, claiming that the Catalan giants are aiming to strengthen their defense and attack.

The two players who have been identified by the Blaugrana board are David Alaba and Sergio Aguero. Both are experienced and decorated players, with the Man City striker in particular being a legendary goalscorer in the Premier League.

The Argentine is reaching the end of his contract with the Citizens, with the expiration date being this summer. It is believed he will leave the club, bringing an end to his unforgettable 10-year spell at the Etihad Stadium.

Given his tally of 256 goals for the English club, Aguero will provide the goalscoring threat Barcelona have been crying out for in the no.9 position since Luis Suarez's departure. Furthermore, due to his close friendship with Lionel Messi, this move could go a long way in convincing Lionel Messi to stay once his contract expires this summer.

There are a few concerns that warrant a mention. The first is the player's age. Given that he is 32, Aguero does not have years of top-level football to offer Barcelona. Additionally, the Argentine has struggled to stay fit recently and has been limited to only nine appearances this season.

However, due to the financial crisis caused by the COVID-19 crisis, Barcelona are not in a situation where they can spend big, meaning signing Alaba and Aguero for free would give them an immediate boost and save money. Furthermore, the plan for Kun is to become a transitional striker ahead of future moves for Lautaro Martinez or Erling Braut Haaland once the revenue streams slowly return to normal.
