LIGA - Report: Xavi targets Dani Olmo and Ferran Torres.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the Barcelona veteran has reduced down his options to RB Leipzig's Dani Olmo and Manchester City's Spanish forward Ferran Torres, who both fit the profile.
Olmo has been on Barcelona's radar for some time. The Blaugrana attempted to sign him late in the summer transfer window, but RB Leipzig refused to agree to a deal. The interest in the 23-year-old has remained high, with Xavi and his team rumored to be major fans of the Spanish international.
Torres is another guy who Barcelona has been keeping an eye on for some time. The 21-year-old has improved dramatically since joining Manchester City from Valencia, thanks to Pep Guardiola's guidance, and has added goalscoring ability to his game.
The Catalans have a new manager after Ronald Koeman was fired. Xavi Hernandez, a club legend, has taken over the reins. This adjustment could lead to a change in transfer plans, as the 41-year-old head coach appears to be focused on assembling a group that best suits his goals.
