La Liga giants FC Barcelona had a very poor season, last time around. Despite finishing second, they were far behind Real Madrid. Their performance in the European competition was also not up to the mark.

So Barcelona came into the summer transfer window with an intern t to sign big players who can give them the much-needed boost. Despite their economic struggles, they spent a lot of money in the transfer market.

Barcelona signed Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha to boost their forward line. Frank Kessie was brought to bring some energy to the Barcelona midfield. Meanwhile, Jules Kounde, Andreas Christensen, Marcos Alonso and Hector Bellerin joined to bolster their defense.

It did not take much time for Barcelona to get back into form. The Catalans won seven of their first eight La Liga matches. With 22 points from the eight matches, they are currently at the top of the Spanish league on goal difference.

However, despite their success in the Spanish League, Barcelona clearly knows that their squad is still far from complete.

It became far more evident in the UEFA Champions League. Barcelona suffered two agonizing defeats against Bayern Munich and Inter Milan and then played another draw against the Nerazzurri. With only four points from four matches, it is looking very tough for them to qualify for the next round.

Even if they want to keep their good form in La Liga going on, they will need some arrival soon. Now according to a report from Diario Sport, the Catalan giants have already two positions that they want to strengthen in the upcoming window itself.

A New Right Back

The first one is a new right-back. Barcelona signed Hector Bellerin on the deadline day of the transfer window. Since then the fullback has struggled to maintain his fitness. Now apart from him, Barcelona only have Sergi Roberto who can play as a make-shift right-back.

Till now, they were using the centre-backs mainly in that right-back position. But with injuries to their main defenders, this option is also gone. Barcelona already had an aim to go for a new right-back in the summer but it looks like they now will have to do that in winter itself.

The first name that comes up is Diogo Dalot of Manchester United. The Catalans wanted the Portuguese in the last window itself but failed to reach a deal. Now with his contract coming to an end in the upcoming summer, they might go for him again.

Replacement of Barcelona captain

The second one is obviously the defensive midfield position. Despite a good start to the season, Busquets is currently struggling in most of the big matches. The Barcelona captain is also set to leave the club after this season.

They already possess Frenkie De Jong who can play in that position. But there’s uncertainty over his future. So the Blaugrana are already looking for another replacement for Busquets.

Their prime target Zubimendi has extended his contract with Real Sociedad. Now another name that has been linked is Ruben Neves of Wolves. Neves’ agent Mendes currently has a great relationship with Barcelona. So deal for the Portuguese might be the best option for the Catalans now.

Barcelona however will need to sell players first before making any more new signings.
