Manchester United seems to be Barcelona's new hunting ground, with several reports linking the Red Devils' stars to the Catalan club. Paul Pogba has been a long-term target for the central position. Meanwhile, Koeman's team have lately been linked to Donny van de Beek, as the young Dutch protégé looks to end his misery. Now there's a fresh name on Barcelona's radar. Jesse Lingard has emerged as a fresh option for Barcelona's front line, according to Fichajes. The upcoming winter transfer window will be a pivotal point in the Englishman's career, as he is expected to make a decision on his future.
The attacker is hoping to get more playing time in order to improve his game and make a solid case for a spot in the Qatar World Cup next year. He does, however, desire a change of scenery. Barcelona are aiming to bolster their front line in the coming months, especially after struggling to score in the first half of the season.
While players like Raheem Sterling and Jesse Lingard are at the top of the list, Lingard is now a viable option as well. Though both the player and the club are ready to accept the conditions, the bone of contention is the buyout clause at the end of the season.
