Despite the financial crisis, FC Barcelona are keen on signing a new midfielder this season. Barca is willing to go to the Premier League to sign a new player for next season. While Barca will be careful with their spending this summer, clubs will try to get the most from the Catalan club when they bid for players. Barca has been targeting this player for a while and could make it happen unless the negotiations go wrong in terms of the transfer fee.

Barcelona are interested in Everton midfielder Amadou Onana. Sport reports that Barça wants to pay $45 million for Everton's Onana, but the English club wants more. The $66 million Everton asks for is considered an exaggerated amount by Barça. Arsenal and Manchester United have already shown their interest in Onana, and a move could happen this summer.

Everton is not very interested in the Barcelona option, considering that Barça is only willing to pay $45 million, $20 million less than what Everton asks for. The English club have informed Barça. The deal for Onana looks complicated and will not happen unless Barça sells a player to gain more funds.
