Barca keen on signing Torres, Dembele better than Mbappe - Laporta

Fri 03 December 2021 | 11:51

The Blaugrana president revealed that the Spanish is among the “many” targets for the winter transfer window.

Joan Laporta

has announced that

Manchester City

’s

Ferran Torres

is one of their transfer targets for January, whereas he also believes that

Ousmane Dembele

is “better than

Kylian Mbappe

”.

Barcelona

are hopeful that the financial problems that saw them lose Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann will be put behind them, with

Xavi

in charge at Camp Nou.

They do not have much money for recruitment in January but they are considering a few potential additions and the Spain international is among them.

Laporta told

 TV3

 :

“He [Torres] is one of the players we have in our sights, but there are many others. You have to wait and see how everything goes.”

He added:

“Xavi has asked us to reinforce the squad and we are going to try to do so, but at the moment we do not have a salary margin to do it.

“Therefore, at this moment it is not possible but we must let the sports management work.”

Although some players are seeing moves to Barcelona mooted, there are also a lot of exit talks.

Ousmane Dembele’s future is being questioned as the World Cup winner is hitting free agency in 2022.

The 24-year-old has been offered fresh terms and Laporta is confident that he will commit to the Blaugrana.

He added:

“We have a very good relationship with Dembele and he wants to stay. We also want him because he is a great player.

“These are situations that need a negotiation with the representatives who want the best for the player. I am enthusiastic about Dembele, he is better than Mbappe.”
