Barcelona target Chelsea starlet Carney Chukwuemeka to bolster attack

Facing the prospect of a trophyless season, Barcelona is gearing up for a lively summer transfer window, and a young Chelsea star could be the spark they need.

While Xavi’s departure from the helm of FC Barcelona has been confirmed, club president Joan Laporta is making last-ditch efforts to retain his services. Meanwhile, the club is already planning for the upcoming summer transfer window. After a disastrous past week, the Blaugranas are set to end the season empty-handed, a stark contrast to their La Liga triumph last spring. Despite lingering financial concerns, the Catalans are determined to bolster their squad in multiple positions. And in midfield, a Chelsea prodigy could soon be calling the Camp Nou his home.

Carney Chukwuemeka (Chelsea) on Barcelona’s Radar

In their quest for reinforcements for the impending summer transfer window, Barcelona is particularly keen on acquiring one or two midfielders. Names like Guido Rodríguez (Betis), Amadou Onana (Everton), and Joshua Kimmich (Bayern) have been mentioned. The Blaugranas could also revisit a long-standing target by making a move for Carney Chukwuemeka.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Catalans haven’t given up on the idea of signing the player Chelsea snapped up for €18 million in 2022, who was already on the radar of Barcelona’s management. Despite having a contract that runs until 2028, the former Aston Villa star is reportedly surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge. Hampered by a severe knee injury early in the season, Carney Chukwuemeka has struggled to find regular playing time under Mauricio Pochettino (2 Premier League starts). Could this be a shrewd move for Barcelona?
