Barcelona transfer news may be hard to come by at the best of times, let alone in February. For anyone who isn't aware, Barca are not in the best financial situation currently, since they risk breaching FFP regulations if they bring in any new players. That said, this could be rectified with player sales in the summer, which is expected.

Barcelona transfer news as Blaugrana prioritise midfield powerhouse at Everton

In terms of players coming in, well, Barcelona fans can start to get very excited, if today's reports are to be believed. According to a claim by Fichajes, Barcelona are set to make Amadou Onana their summer transfer priority, with the midfielder linked with a move away Everton this summer.

Onana is eyed by many of Europe's biggest clubs, including Arsenal. However, according to a report by The Mirror, Onana had the opportunity to move to the Gunners in the January transfer window but he turned it down.

It remains to be seen whether Onana would be open to move to Barcelona but it is very rare that players pass up the opportunity to represent one of the biggest clubs in the world, especially when they are craving Champions League football.

Onana is one of the most underrated midfielders in the Premier League. His whopping tall frame allows him to be a mennace in the midfield, as he can constantly be found winning both aerial and standing duels. Despite what his height may suggest, though, Onana is technically gifted and puts in some great attacking strides, which would benefit Barca.

Xaxi will leave Barcelona in the summer transfer window, leaving many to wonder who will take over. From the successor's perspective, though, they may require the addition of a new midfielder, with Frenkie de Jong linked with a move to Spurs.
