After agreeing a winter transfer deadline day deal , the player trained with the team on Tuesday with Barcelona revealed the signing on Wednesday.
Earlier in the January, Barca signed Ferran Torres from Man City and also signed Adama Traore from wolverhampton Wonders on a loan deal. This is Barcelona’s third signing to boost their attack in this window.
The club still hasn’t found the suitable replacements in their defence. With Jordi Alba not being in a top form and unavailability of quality right backs as Dani Alves can’t play games day in and day out.
Barcelona is currently 5th on the La Liga table and are facing Napoli in the europa league. The club must hope for a top 4 finish with the new signings on board.
