Spanish giants Barcelona look set to make the biggest surprise deal of the transfer window with Ghanaian international Kevin-Prince Boateng about to make the move to the La Liga leaders.
According to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Boateng could join Barcelona on loan
presumably till the end of the season.
News broke on Saturday that Barcelona were going to make a surprise move when they were linked with a loan move former Arsenal forward Carlos Vela, now playing in MLS.
The Mexican is only 29 and whilst he might be playing in America he seems like the perfect answer to Ernesto Valverde’s problems with not having a back up striker for Luis Suarez.
However, if Vela felt like a transfer from out of left field then this next one is definitely even more of a surprise with Barca reportedly about to sign former Portsmouth midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng.
Boateng has scored five goals in 15 appearances for Sassuolo, who he joined in the summer, and has previous experience in La Liga where he was more prolific.
In the 2016/17 season he scored 10 goals in the Spanish top tier playing for Las Palmas, although it still seems like an odd move for the Catalan giants.
Boateng has previously had his issues and had his contract terminated at Schalke as a result of ‘poor behaviour’ with the same at Las Palmas for ‘irreversible personal reasons.’
