Ferran Torres is set to continue at Barcelona beyond the upcoming summer transfer window.

Ferran Torres will continue at FC Barcelona next season. According to Fernando Polo of Mundo Deportivo, in the upper echelons of the Blaugrana club, there is full confidence in the Valencia forward, whose performance has left a very positive impression. Xavi Hernández has repeatedly praised how he has turned the situation around after his continuity was in doubt at the end of last season.

With 11 goals and four assists in 32 matches this season, Ferran is the second-highest scorer in the squad, only surpassed by Robert Lewandowski (14). His instinct near the goal is one of the main reasons for the confidence in a player with a contract until 2027. On February 29, he will turn 24 with a strong determination to make the most of his minutes without resigning himself to a substitute role, which he accepts with a positive attitude but never lowering his arms.

After rising to the elite as a right winger at Valencia at the age of 17, throughout his career, he has improved in all aspects, now enjoying versatility that is another asset for Barça. Ferran can play in any of the three forward positions and has even sometimes played as a second striker behind Robert Lewandowski. Thanks to his ‘top’ competitive mentality, Ferran is not on any transfer list. His signing was a specific request from Xavi when he returned in November 2021.
