Chelsea, Tottenham, and Atletico Madrid are reportedly keen on signing 21-year-old Barcelona prospect Ez Abde this summer.
According to a report by Spanish outlet SPORT, Ez Abde will be a popular figure in the transfer market in the summer transfer window. Chelsea, Tottenham, and Atletico Madrid are keen on signing the 21-year-old Barcelona prospect. And the Blaugrana will demand €15 million to part ways with the youngster.
Abde Ezzalzouli, better known as Ez Abde, progressed through the ranks at various Spanish clubs before striking gold at Hercules CF. He graduated into the first-team setup at Hercules while still in his teens before earning a big move to Barcelona. But the Moroccan international has made gradual progress since joining Barcelona.
The 21-year-old made a few appearances in Xavi Hernandez’s early days as the Barcelona boss. But Abde’s stock fell after the Blaugrana signed several attackers in the two transfer windows last year. So it was hardly surprising that Barcelona loaned him out last summer, with Osasuna signing him.
The youngster has gradually grown in stature at Osasuna this season, chipping in with three goals and two assists in 21 appearances. But Abde’s long-term Barcelona future is uncertain. And such a situation has captured the attention of several European bigwigs, including Chelsea, Tottenham, and Atletico Madrid.</p
The interest from Chelsea is baffling, considering Todd Boehly has signed several wide attackers in the last two transfer windows. Nonetheless, it looks like Chelsea might look to sign the Barcelona prospect. On the other hand, Tottenham might need to delve into the market for a winger in the wake of Richarlison’s recent outburst.
In addition, Arnaut Danjuma will likely return to Villarreal when his loan stint with Tottenham ends. As for Atletico Madrid, Los Rojiblancos might need to invest in a wide attacker amid uncertainties surrounding Yannick Carrasco’s future. Interestingly, the Belgian international is a target for FC Barcelona.
Meanwhile, Barcelona will demand €15 million to part ways with Abde in the summer transfer window. Chelsea and Tottenham should not have any qualms about shelling out €15 million to sign the 21-year-old. But it is unclear if Atletico Madrid can pay such a sum amid the financial woes.
