Barcelona table loan-to-buy bid to sign Jaden Philogene

La Liga heavyweights Barcelona have reportedly lodged their offer to sign 22-year-old English winger Jaden Philogene from Hull City.

According to reputed German journalist Florian Plettenberg, Jaden Philogene is the subject of interest from Barcelona. The Catalan giants are keen on signing a wide attacker in the summer transfer window. They have offered a loan deal to Hull City for the English winger, with a mandatory purchase clause worth €20-23 million that depends on certain conditions.

Jaden Philogene and his rise at Hull City

Jaden Philogene has found a stable footing in his career since joining Hull City from Aston Villa last summer. A native of London, the Englishman rose in prominence during his spell with the West Midlands club, with pundits professing a bright future at Villa Park for the youngster.

However, after embarking on two loan spells away from Aston Villa, Philogene wanted clarity on his future and chose to leave the Villans last summer. The 22-year-old was exceptional in the 2023/24 campaign for Hull City, contributing to 18 goals in 32 appearances across all competitions by finding the back of the net 12 times and providing six assists.

Meanwhile, Jaden Philogene’s progress at Hull City has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe. A few Premier League outfits have shown interest in the young English winger. However, his next destination might be Barcelona, with the Blaugrana submitting an offer to sign him.

Barcelona want Philogene

Recent reports claimed that intermediaries offered Jaden Philogene to Barcelona. The Catalan giants are interested in the 22-year-old Englishman as they look to bolster their offensive unit in the summer transfer window. Ferran Torres and Raphinha face an uncertain future at the club, compelling Barcelona to scour the market for a replacement.

While Torres has insisted he is going nowhere, Raphinha might still be on the chopping block. Philogene has thus emerged as a potential cost-effective option to reinforce the Barcelona attack. They have tabled a bid for a loan deal with a mandatory purchase clause worth €20-23 million.

The clause worth €20-23 million will activate under certain conditions, including playing time. It will be interesting to see if the bid convinces Hull City. However, a permanent move might not be possible due to Barcelona’s persistent financial issues.
