Barcelona are reportedly interested in a summer move for Stuttgart winger Borna Sosa, who could be available for just €25m (£20.9m).
After a quiet start following his departure from Dinamo Zagreb, Sosa has impressed the German side over the past two seasons. In the 2020/21 season, he registered 10 assists as newly promoted Stuttgart finished just outside the European places.
He has also been on form this season, scoring seven goals for his teammates, even as his side were sucked into a relegation battle.
According to Kicker, there was significant interest in his services during the January transfer window, but Sosa agreed to stay to help Stuttgart fight relegation.
However, as part of these negotiations, the Bundesliga outfit have reportedly promised to let the player go if interested clubs stick to their €25m valuation.
One of the teams reportedly looking for Sosa is Barcelona. The Blaugrana have undergone quite a transformation since Xavi took over as manager in November, losing just once in 18 La Liga appearances and rising to second place in the table.
Sosa isn’t the only player they’re watching either. Barca are also believed to be closing in on a double hit for Chelsea’s Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta, while Franck Kessie is also in their sights.
