Which player should Barcelona prioritize before Thursday’s deadline?

The 2024 winter transfer window in Spain is set to close in less than 48 hours, and Barcelona is looking to make a last-minute move. The club has been eager to add to their squad, and with the extra day granted by La Liga, there is newfound hope that a deal can be wrapped up before the window shuts.

Barcelona’s Wage Budget and Potential Signings

Following Gavi’s injury and the possibility of removing Alejandro Balde’s salary from the wage bill, Barcelona now has a slim margin to make a signing. With a midfielder initially being targeted, the lack of depth at left-back due to Balde’s injury has also become a concern. This has led to speculation that the club may turn their attention to Sevilla’s Marcos Acuna as a potential signing.

Left-Back or Defensive Midfielder?

While a left-back would address the depth issue, the return of Joao Cancelo from injury provides some relief in that position. This has sparked a debate on whether it would be wiser for Barcelona to focus on signing a new left-back or to address their need for a defensive midfielder. The struggles in midfield have highlighted the necessity of adding a natural single pivot to the squad for better team balance.

Decision-Making at Barcelona

It is evident that Barcelona is in need of reinforcements, especially in midfield, but the financial constraints may limit their options. As the clock ticks down on the transfer window, the decision-making process within the club’s hierarchy will play a crucial role in determining their approach to the final stages of the transfer window.
