Among the notable individuals Barcelona is keeping an eye on are Ernest Nuamah from Ghana, who plays as a winger for Olympique Lyon in Ligue 1. Yankuba Minteh from Gambia is another player of interest, known for his powerful performances as a winger for Feyenoord. Additionally, Ousmane Diomandé from Ivory Coast, a center back from Sporting de Portugal, has caught their attention with his impressive displays this season.
Barcelona’s list also includes Dango Ouattara from Burkina Faso, who plays as a full-back-winger for Bournemouth in England. Pape Matar Sarr from Senegal, a midfielder who was recently re-signed by Tottenham, and Raphael Onyedika from Nigeria, a talented starting midfielder for Brugge, complete the group.
