His transfer was agreed for 31 million euros, and since then his performances in his current team, Sporting Braga, have had great improvements. In Barcelona they look forward to seeing him wear the blaugrana colors, and want to see what he has to offer.

According to the same report, Emerson de Souza, a winger who partly belongs to Barcelona and had a very good season on loan at Betis, has garnered interest from Bayer Leverkusen. The German team could be one of the few teams that has liquidity to finance signings if it manages to sell its young highly rated talent, Kai Havertz.
