Long-term, Barcelona will require a deeper midfield player due to Oriol Romeu’s ageing, and the temporary fix of starting Ilkay Gundogan at the base of the midfield is also unsustainable. Everton midfielder Amadou Onana is one of the players they believe might be up to the task.

This season, the Belgian behemoth has been tearing up the midfield in the Premier League, reports have it that Barcelona has good scouting reports on him. They have noticed that he has exceptional ball-winning ability, stamina, and aerial ability, in addition to using the ball skillfully once he gets it.

For a Barcelona team with limited resources, negotiating a deal for Onana appears to be difficult. Everton is in no rush to sell, and he still has four years left on his contract. Manchester United and Chelsea are two other teams that have been linked to him. Everton may have to go into sales if they are relegated, according to the Catalan daily, but Sean Dyche’s team appears to be headed for promotion despite their ten-point drop.
