Barcelona are reportedly planning summer onslaught for Liverpool’s Gini Wijnaldum and Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero european sports.
Joan Laporta has returned to the Camp Nou as chairman and is working on the club’s summer transfer plans.
Barcelona’s finances are in shambles, so they only seem to be buying cheap and free transfers in the summer.
The report claims that the new striker is the top priority of everything – which means that landing Aguero is more important to them than signing Wijnaldum.

Laporta’s first goal is to try to persuade Lionel Messi to stay at the club after the season.
One way to do this is to bring in his international compatriot Aguero, who made 97 appearances for Argentina.
Barca paid Luis Suarez to leave for Atletico Madrid in the summer.

Wijnaldum will have the opportunity to link up with Barcelona’s international team-mate Frenkie de Jong, while former Netherlands boss Ronald Koeman is in the hot seat.
Both are out of contract at the end of the season, making them one of Barcelona’s most attractive offers.
Without a transfer fee, they will be difficult to replace, especially in another window that will be affected by the pandemic.
