With the Catalan outfit hoping to bolster their attacking options after Munir El Haddadi’s transfer to Sevilla, the likes of Alvaro Morata, Fernando Llorente, and Olivier Giroud were linked but an interesting twist now sees Ghana forward, Kevin-Prince Boateng, more likely to move to the Camp Nou.
Barcelona supporters are likely to reminisce Boateng from his AC Milan days, given that he scored a sensational goal against them in the Champions League in 2011.
According to Catalan radio RAC1 the 31-year-old former Tottenham and Portsmouth player has already said goodbye to team-mates at his current club Sassuolo, and would be in Barcelona on Monday afternoon to sign a loan deal until the end of the season.
The deal is speculated to be worth 2million euros (£1.8m) with an 8m euros (£7m) option to buy the attacker who has scored four goals in 13 games for Sassuolo thus far.
Boateng’s career that has seen him play across countries like England, Germany, and Italy, and he would be no stranger to Spanish football as he featured for Las Palmas in 2016/17, scoring 10 and assisting five in 28 appearances for the club.
