Barcelona prepare cash-plus-player deal with Napoli.Barcelona will step up their efforts to sign £55m-rated striker Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli this summer by offering midfielder Alex Song as part of the deal, according to Fichajes.net.
The Catalan giants are desperate to bring in a new big name upfront, and have recently been linked with Argentine international Higuain as their main target, with the former Real Madrid forward impressing greatly in his first season in Serie A.
Signed as a replacement for Edinson Cavani, Higuain has established himself as one of the club’s most important players with 24 goals and 11 assists in all competitions this season, and they now face the potential blow of losing him quickly this summer.
Barca will hope that the offer of Song arriving in return can tempt the Naples outfit to do a deal, as Rafael Benitez’s side have long been in the market for a signing in that area, with the likes of Lyon’s Maxime Gonalons believed to be one of their main targets for this transfer window.
Song could prove a good addition, though he has struggled for regular football during his time at the Nou Camp.
