Barcelona considered making a move for Ligue 1 midfielder worth €12 million.

FC Barcelona executed a number of inbound and leaving agreements on Friday, the day of the transfer deadline.

Joao Felix and Joao Cancelo, who both joined on season-long loans from Atletico Madrid and Manchester City, respectively, were undoubtedly the main storylines.

Recall that in addition to a right-back and a forward, manager Xavi Hernandez also looked to sign a new midfield player.

Additionally, it seems that the Catalans did contemplate making a move for one, even though nobody showed up.

Morocco's Azzedine Ounahi Remains Unable to Play Due to Injury

For Barça, Azzedine Ounahi was on their minds.

In fact, Barcelona considered pursuing Morocco’s Azzedine Ounahi, a midfielder for Olympique Marseille, towards the end of the transfer window, according to Santi Aouna of Foot Mercato.

With a market worth of €12 million, Ounahi is no stranger to Barcelona. The midfielder was first connected to the team in December following his performances with Morocco at the FIFA World Cup.

Ounahi was at Angers SCO at the time, but at the close of the winter transfer window, the 23-year-old signed a contract with Marseille after the Catalans decided not to pursue him.

However, the Moroccan has not been playing much for the Ligue 1 team under Marcelino, and as a result, numerous teams expressed interest in him this summer, according to the source.

Additionally, Ounahi was being considered by a number of teams, including Barcelona, who are rumoured to have considered signing the midfield player on a loan basis.

The plan was abandoned because Marseille sought a straight move and did not want to authorise their player’s loan out.

Moreover, Giovani Lo Celso was taken into

For Barça, Lo Celso was a target.

Giovani Lo Celso of Tottenham was another player Barcelona considered adding to the midfield in the closing days of the transfer season.

Indeed, earlier this week, reports surfaced indicating that the club had approached Spurs informally regarding the 27-year-old.

Barça’s bid was met with resistance from the Premier League team, who were unwilling to allow a short-term departure, and the La Liga champions who desired him on loan.

Barcelona will therefore rely on academy players like Fermin Lopez, Marc Casado, and possibly Aleix Garrido to step in when necessary rather than signing a new midfield player.
