Barca aims to replace Raphinha, the Dortmund hero rejected Chelsea

Barca targets Girona to replace striker Raphinha. Maatsen does not hide his intention to continue to contribute to Dortmund. These were hot news on May 1.


Barcelona contacts Girona star to replace Raphinha

According to reports from Fichajes, Barcelona are currently making efforts to pursue Girona star Viktor Tsygankov. Currently, Raphinha is being pursued by many teams in the Saudi Pro League and the possibility that the Brazilian striker will leave Camp Nou in this year's summer transfer window cannot be ruled out.


And clearly, Tsygankov will be an extremely potential replacement in Barcelona's right wing corridor. This season, Tsygankov has improved significantly since moving to Girona from Dynamo Kyiv. Currently, this player has 6 goals and 4 assists after 29 appearances in all competitions for the Spanish team.


However, to recruit a winger from Girona, Barcelona will have to compete with many other teams like Bayern Munich. And with Barca's difficult financial situation, they will have to sell their quality contracts if they want to pursue Tsygankov.
