Villa are interested in loaning out Ferran Torres from Barcelona.
Aston Villa of the Premier League is considering Barcelona’s Ferran Torres as one of their top transfer targets this summer.
The former Manchester City attacker is up for sale, but the 23-year-old Spanish international is eager to remain at Barcelona. However, given their wealth of offensive alternatives and mounting financial woes, Barça are eager to offload the player this transfer season.
Monchi is the new sports director at Villa and a former transfer expert at Sevilla. He now is in charge of the talks and “would love to make it happen,” according to the site.
After an agreement for the acquisition of Villarreal and Spain center-back Pau Torres is purportedly got yesterday, Torres would be the Birmingham club’s second important La Liga arrival this summer.
Ferran, on the other hand, has a contract with Barcelona until 2027 and has already spent approximately €90 million in transfer fees throughout his brief career, travelling from Valencia to Manchester and then to Barcelona.
Villa is targeting Ferran Torres
Aston Villa are allegedly considering making a loan and buy option deal to Barcelona for Ferran Torres.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the Villans would sign Torres on a temporary basis with a purchase option set at 25 million euros.
The report isn’t happy because Barcelona isn’t delighted with the idea and Torres wants to stay. But it does believe that things may change.
Barcelona has to unload players quickly, which might boost Villa’s cause, while Torres may struggle to secure starts next season.
Torres spent two years in the Premier League with Manchester City before joining Barcelona in 2022.
Under manager Unai Emery, Villa finished seventh in the league. Aston Villa won European football for the first time in 13 years.
This summer, the team signed free agent Youri Tielemans and hopes to complete a deal for Villarreal defender Pau Torres.
Barcelona and Villa just completed a deal, with Philippe Coutinho joining the club last summer. But it is unclear whether Torres will follow him to England.
