Barcelona interested in loaning Championship player and it would be the craziest transfer of the window

Barca could make a shock signing this summer.

Barcelona are reportedly interested in signing a player on loan who is currently playing in the Championship.

After all the talk last summer that Barcelona were ‘back’, the Spanish giants endured a disappointing 2023-24 campaign.

After dropping out of the Copa del Rey at the quarter-final stage, Xavi’s side were eliminated from the Champions League at the same stage.

Barca ended up finishing 10 points behind La Liga champions and arch-rivals Real Madrid, and the season ended with Xavi’s dismissal.

Former Bayern Munich and Germany boss Hansi Flick has been appointed as the Spaniard’s successor, and the German is keen to return the club to the top of Spanish and European football.

While Barca have a squad packed with quality players, Flick is looking to bring in some new faces to freshen things up at Camp Nou.

Financial restrictions have limited the club’s spending power in recent years, forcing them to get creative with loans and free transfers.

The Athletic reporting that Barcelona must fill a €130 million ‘hole’ in their accounts before the end of June if they wish to sign anyone this summer.

With that in mind, Barcelona appear to be interested in signing an exciting young talent on loan.

According to Relevo, Barca want to sign Hull City winger Jaden Philogene, with talks already underway.

According to the report, Barcelona want to sign the 22-year-old on loan with an option to buy at a later date.

Philogene only joined Hull last summer from Aston Villa in a £5m move, and enjoyed and impressive 2023-24 campaign on Humberside.

The England U21 international scored 12 goals and provided six assists in 32 Championship appearances, putting potential suitors on notice.

Barcelona’s main target is Athletic Club’s Nico Williams, although the Spain star could prove to be too expensive.

Speaking previously about Philogene, Hull owner Acun Ilicali claimed he would not accept an offer of £30m euros for him.
