After the failure to bring Antoine Griezmann to the club, Barca are now linked with Hirving Lozano.
Barcelona are increasingly linked with the signing of Hirving Lozano. The 22-year old attacker is currently with Mexico, as the team aims for World Cup glory in Russia. Lozano scored the only goal in shocking 1-0 upset for Germany.
The winger is currently playing for PSV Eindhoven, which suggests that the move to one of the European heavyweights would definitely be on the cards. According to ESPN Mexico, the winger is currently valued at 50 million euros. His value would gradually increase if he continues to deliver performances like the one against Germany in the first match of the World Cup.
The 2017-18 season was his first in Europe, and he took the Dutch league by storm. In 29 league appearances, he scored 17 goals. He made 34 overall appearances, scoring 19 goals.
Lozano is naturally a left winger who likes to cut inside. His counter-attacking abilities were on full show against Germany, and he is equally effective in creating and exploiting spaces.
However, Barcelona already have Ousmane Dembele, who they just signed last summer. Hence, it would be interesting to see how Barca would make place for Lozano, should he join the club this summer.
Earlier, Barcelona received a blow last week when Antoine Griezmann announced that he will stay at Atletico Madrid. The Catalan giants were heavily linked with a move for the French forward.
