Barcelona transfer news: Ronald Koeman identifies RB Leipzig star as priority signing


Although the Barcelona manager’s own future at the club is far from certain, he is still busy identifying players he’d like the club to sign over the coming transfer windows.

Ronald Koeman has identified RB Leipzig left-back Angelino as priority signing, with Barcelona expected to pursue the 23-year-old’s signature next summer.

Don Balon further claims that the Barca hierarchy have informed Koeman the club won’t sign any player in January, barring an exit. The club’s presidential elections in late January also reduces the chances of the club dipping its toes in the transfer market in January.

Yet another factor that complicates the possibility of Barca pursuing any signings in January is the future of their manager. Koeman is under great pressure after a below-average start to the new season and results would have to improve greatly if he’s to be Barca manager come end of this season.

However, regardless of who is manager at the club, the Camp Nou outfit would like to sign the Manchester City loanee Angelino next summer. They have reportedly identified him as a natural replacement for Jordi Alba and would wait until the end of the ongoing campaign to discuss his transfer with Man City.
