Intermediaries have reportedly offered Barcelona the chance to sign 18-year-old Estonian wonderkid Matrix Einer this summer.
According to a report by Spanish publication SPORT, Matrix Einer could be an intriguing addition to the Barcelona Atletic squad in the coming weeks. Intermediaries have offered the Blaugrana the chance to sign the 18-year-old Estonian wonderkid, who has drawn comparisons with Frenkie de Jong in his homeland and previously attracted interest from Bayern Munich and Liverpool.
Matrix Einer is a product of the Paide Linnameeskond academy and has gone from strength to strength in the last few years. The teenage prodigy is one of several Estonian whizkids born in 2003 to make a splash in his homeland, with many comparing him with Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.
The 18-year-old made his league debut for Paide Linnameeskond last year and has made one further appearance for the Estonian club, scoring one goal. Einer’s progress has not gone unnoticed, with intermediaries offering the youngster to Barcelona.
The Catalan giants are renowned for being constantly active in the market to find the most prodigious prospects. Such an outlook has fetched Barcelona several first-team regulars over the years, with the first-team squad currently boasting players like Gavi, Pedri, and Ronald Araujo as a result.
They have signed many exciting talents this summer, with Pablo Torre, Emre Demir, and Nil Ruiz, among others, joining Barcelona. Most recently, Roberto Fernandez bolstered Barcelona Atletic’s attack, with Matrix Einer now emerging as a candidate to reinforce the squad further before the summer transfer window shuts down.
The 18-year-old Estonian wonderkid has made a splash at Paide Linnameeskond, and his qualities might make him the perfect fit at Barcelona Atletic. Einer likes to roam in and around the final third and is renowned for his vision, passing skills and mobility. He also boasts of a rapid change of pace while being progressive in his outlook on the pitch.
Einer always prefers to opt for the vertical option when stitching play together, thus making him the ideal fit in Barcelona’s ethos. But it is unclear if Barcelona will take up the offer to sign the 18-year-old Estonian wonderkid, who has previously attracted interest from Bayern Munich and Liverpool, before the summer transfer window shuts down.
