Barcelona have been very good this season under Valverde as they have 10 wins in 11 games in la Liga. Even if they seem to have a very solid side on the pitch, the management is always looking at areas where they can improve. Aleksandr Golovin (21 years old) is a player who has been turning heads as many big European clubs have been scouting him. According to Sport, FC Barcelona have strong interest in him as they view him as a complete player. He has a good vision, he is quick and he has a lot of offensive skills/potential.
The young Russian rising star was also seemingly on Arsenal’s radar as Wenger’s club offered CSKA Moscow close to 10 million pounds for him in the past. The Russian club is now looking to get closer to 20 million euros for him as it remains to be seen if Barcelona are ready to go that high.
Valverde’s club beat Sevilla yesterday by a 2-1 score line at the Camp Nou as this was yet another important win for Barca.
