5 players Barca could buy from Bayer Leverkusen's super team

5 players Barca could buy from Bayer Leverkusen's super team

After completing a historic unbeaten season in the Bundesliga, Bayer Leverkusen are heading towards winning the treble without suffering a single defeat in all competitions.

Even though Xabi Alonso is staying with them for another season, some of their important assets could be sold sooner or later.

Who could suit Barca well in the coming years?

Florian Wirtz

The attacking midfielder has been one of Europe's best players this season, recording 18 goals and 19 assists in all tournaments. With all due respect to Pedri, the 21-year-old seems the most standout talent in his position.

On several occasions already, Wirtz has revealed his sympathy for Leo Messi and... Joao Felix. While he's being linked with the 2025 move to Real Madrid, we hope common sense will prevail and he makes the right choice.

Alejandro Grimaldo

12 goals, 19 assists as a left-back – it's crazy to realise Barca didn't go for the La Masia graduate who was a FREE AGENT last summer.

The 28-year-old says he's not against coming back to Spain one day, although he even doesn't rule out the option of joining Real Madrid this time.

Jeremie Frimpong

If you've watched Leverkusen this season, you know their wing-backs are something else. Frimpong is said to be a hot topic for Real Madrid and Manchester City, although there's a big chance the Dutchman will stay put for one more season.

Getting a quality right-back is always on Barca's agenda, so maybe they'd better spend part of Joao Cancelo's fee on Jeremie?

Edmond Tapsoba

Although defending is not Bayer's strongest attribute overall, Tapsoba is finishing the season as one of the best centre-backs in the world. He has stood out for his progressive carries, passes into the final third and the successful percentage of tackled dribblers. Stat sources Fbref identifies the 25-year-old as a similar player to Jules Kounde and Andreas Christensen.

In fact, Deco brought Tapsoba to Barca's facilities last summer, offering his former client to the club. Would this option re-emerge in the future?

Victor Boniface

After enjoying a really prolific season with Belgian side Union SG, the Nigerian striker went to the Bundesliga to set the league on fire. His tally currently boasts 21 goals in all competitions – and this despite spending several months on the sidelines and bitterly missing the Africa Cup of Nations (what if he was Nigeria's missing piece?).

Would Barca go for the forward as Robert Lewandowski's heir?
