Barcelona Transfer Saga: Fresh News on Aymeric Laporte,  Van Persie, Arda Turan & Yarmolenk


Champions League winners Barcelona are enduring a difficult period following the injury of Argentinian wizard Lionel Messi. To make matters worse, Barcelona can’t catch a break with their transfer targets. The Catalan club are seeking arbitration to sign Arda Turan prior to January transfer window and are now considering a January bid for Fenerbahce striker Robin van Persie.

Having seen a number of high-profile midfielders and attackers suffer serious injuries of late, the Catalans plan to strengthen in the winter, and the priority is on signing experienced players who can make an immediate impact.

And while a move for Celta Vigo star Nolito seems on the cards, acheter fifa coins Barcelona are also weighing up swoop for Robin van Persie. The 32-year-old is seen as someone who could prove a good signing at Camp Nou despite the fact that he is already past his prime.

Van Persie only joined Turkish giants Fenerbahce in the summer, but he recently complained about the lack of first team opportunities. The Netherlands international has less than two years left on his deal at Sukru Saracoglu, but chances are he would be interested to hear what Barcelona have to say.

Barca close on Aymeric Laporte

Spanish giants Barcelona are reportedly wrapping up the deal fifa coins to sign French defender Aymeric Laporte from Athletic Bilbao, the Daily Mirror has suggested.

The talented footballer has a €50 million release clause in his current contract and it would appear as though the Catalans are ready to match the asking price. Barcelona’s defensive problems are well documented and they believe that Laporte can become a rock at the back in Luis Enrique’s team.

Manchester United were also hoping to lure the France Under-21 stopper to Old Trafford, but it looks as though the Catalans are set to win the chase. Laporte has been putting in some excellent performances in Spanish La Liga for a couple of years now, and he already has 89 league appearances to his name.

Being a cultured defender who is very comfortable with a ball, he would fit in perfectly with Barcelona’s style of play.

Yarmolenko extends contract

Ukraine star Andriy Yarmolenko has ended speculation linking him with a big club move by extending his contract with Dynamo Kiev.

The 25-year-old has signed a new deal until June 2020 with the Ukrainian giants, in doing so snubbing interest from some of Europe’s top sides.

With his previous contract due to expire at the end of the season, Yarmolenko had been a target for both Chelsea and Barcelona, with Jose Mourinho flying to Ukraine to have a look at the winger in the Euro 2016 qualifier vs Spain. But, against all odds, the highly rated footballer has committed his future to Dynamo Kiev, once again proving his loyalty to the club that was responsible for his football upbringing.

It takes just one look at Yarmolenko’s stats to realise what a cracking footballer he is, with the attacking midfielder having managed impressive 103 goals and 71 assists in 274 competitive appearances.
