Xavi Hernandez wants to sign £21m Manchester City forward


Barcelona are interested in signing Ferran Torres who is currently on the books of Manchester City, according to reports. 

The 21-year-old started the first four matches in the Premier League this season, scoring two goals and creating an assist in the process. 

However, he has been out of action since September due to injury. And now with the Citizens playing so well at the moment, the Spaniard could find it difficult to regain his position in the team. 

Barcelona could be an attractive option for the former Valencia player who is known for his pace, creativity and technique. 

The Catalans made a terrible start to the 2021-22 season and are currently ninth in the league standings. 

They have appointed Xavi Hernandez as their new manager following the dismissal of Ronald Koeman last month. 

The former star midfielder wants to strengthen his attacking ranks either in January or the summer transfer window. 

And as per Mundo Deportivo, Xavi is a huge admirer of Ferran Torres, with the Spanish boss particularly a fan of his ability to play in extreme environments.  

The 21-year-old  joined Manchester City in the summer of 2020 from Valencia in a deal worth around £20.8 million 

Since his arrival at the Etihad Stadium, he has clocked up 43 appearances across all competitions, scoring 16 goals and creating four assists in the process (stats from Transfermarkt). 

Torres is a hugely talented player and City must do everything to keep him in Manchester.
