Barcelona considering Fer Lopez swoop

La Liga heavyweights Barcelona are reportedly interested in signing 19-year-old Spanish midfield sensation Fer Lopez from Celta Vigo.

According to a report by Spanish journalist Oscar Mendez, Fer Lopez is the subject of interest from Barcelona. The Catalan giants are scouring the market for a midfielder heading into the summer transfer window. They have thus identified the 19-year-old Celta Vigo midfield sensation as a target, although the Galician outfit will look to tie him to a new contract.

Who is Fer Lopez?

Fer Lopez is the latest teenage wonderkid to rise in prominence in Spain. A native of Madrid, the youngster has made his mark during his spell with Celta Vigo, graduating from the Galician club’s youth division. An attacking midfielder by trade, the Spaniard is renowned for his vision and goalscoring ability.

The 19-year-old has enjoyed an exceptional 2023/24 campaign with Celta Vigo Fortuna, chipping in with seven goals and three assists in 31 league outings. Meanwhile, Lopez’s progress has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe, including Barcelona.

The Catalan giants are renowned for constantly scouring the market for highly-rated prospects to bolster their youth squads and the first-team unit. The efforts have increased during Joan Laporta’s current reign as the president due to Barcelona’s never-ending financial mess. So, signing youngsters does not set them back by much.

Barcelona interested in Lopez

Meanwhile, the outgoing La Liga champions have had their sights set on Celta Vigo prodigies for a long time. Gabri Veiga was a target for Barcelona before he sealed a shock move to the Saudi Pro League. Meanwhile, Hugo Sotelo has emerged on Barcelona’s radar in the last few months. Fer Lopez is the latest name on Barcelona’s wishlist.

Barcelona will look to secure the services of the 19-year-old Spanish midfield sensation in the summer transfer window. However, Celta Vigo will aim to tie him to a new contract, and they do not want to listen to offers for the teenage prospect.

It will be interesting to see if Barcelona can turn Fer Lopez’s head and compel him to push for a move to the Catalan club in the summer transfer window. Meanwhile, Celta Vigo will aim to agree on a new deal with the 19-year-old.
