FC Eyeing Serie A Midfield Talent Lazar Samardzic

Key Points of the Article:

  • Barcelona are actively searching for a replacement for Sergio Busquets in the defensive midfield position.
  • Lazar Samardzic is a prominent candidate.
  • FC were previously interested in Samardzic during his youth career at Hertha Berlin.
  • Rival Serie A clubs are also interested.

Familiar Face, New Opportunity

Barcelona and Samardzic have already faced each other. RB Leipzig signed the Serbian player in 2020 but the club had kept a close eye on him during his Hertha Berlin junior career. Therefore, they couldn’t sign him. Samardzic made Udinese his home and he has since developed into one of Serie A’s most gifted young midfielders.

Addressing the Midfield Void

The squad was severely lacking when Sergio Busquets left in the summer of last year. Oriol Romeu was replaced but he hasn’t performed up to expectations thus far. This implies that the top goal for the summer transfer window is now to get a top-tier central midfielder. Samardzic is a tempting choice due to his skill set and possible fit.

Competition and Affordability

Samardzic may face competition from two other Serie A teams Napoli and Inter Milan for his services since they have also expressed interest in signing him. Barcelona may have an advantage over other suitors like Joshua Kimmich or Amadou Onana due to his €35 million release clause which is regarded as reasonable. According to reports, Mats Wieffer is also thought to be a cheap alternative.

Xavi’s Red Card and Reaction

The news that Barcelona is considering Samardzic comes on the same day that manager Xavi Hernandez was sent off during their recent 3-0 victory against Atletico Madrid. The manager praised the team’s outstanding play even if he claimed that Xavi’s dismissal was “unfair.” The firing of Xavi sparked excitement. The club is negotiating the remaining La Liga games eight points behind leader Real Madrid and this incident highlights the high stakes involved.

Looking Ahead

Lazar Samardzic is being pursued by Barcelona, a sign of their desire to bolster their midfield. They may be able to take back the top spot in both domestic and European leagues with this. The Serbian’s talent and his release clause make the Blaugrana a prudent financial decision. nevertheless, with rival teams circling. The battle to sign Samardzic during the transfer season appears to be very exciting.
