Newcastle, Tottenham tipped to reignite interest in Barcelona star as LaLiga giants plan January firesale

Barcelona will reportedly ‘listen to offers’ for several players in January, with Newcastle and Tottenham target Andreas Christensen among those likely to be sold. 

Due to the ongoing financial crisis at the Spanish powerhouse, manager Xavi will probably have to part ways with a few key players.

In recent months, Christensen has been linked to moves to Newcastle and Tottenham, two teams eager to add a new center-back in January.

Due to Sven Botman’s injury, Eddie Howe has been forced to start backup center back Jamal Lascelles for the Magpies in their last 11 league games.

Botman’s absence has been a factor in Newcastle’s decline, thus it would be prudent to get a fresh, top-notch defense.

Similar circumstances affect Tottenham, as summer signing Micky van de Ven is expected to miss several months due to a hamstring issue.

As a result, we could potentially see the Premier League rivals both launch bids for Christensen in January.

Barcelona tipped to offload three players in January

Due to their financial problems, Barcelona is reportedly open to offers for “all of their players” in January, according to sources from Spain that Football Espana referenced.

According to the assertion, Christensen, Robert Lewandowski, and Jules Kounde are the “most likely options to be sold” and have “attracted interest in the past.”

Christensen, who played for Chelsea for his first eight years of his career, is now lower on the Camp Nou’s hierarchy.

Xavi now seems to prefer Ronald Araujo above the 27-year-old, despite the fact that he has made 13 La Liga games this season.

Nonetheless, Christensen might end up being a valuable acquisition to either Newcastle or Tottenham given his background playing at the highest level in both England and Spain.

He has also won six major trophies in his career, so could help bring a winning menality to one of the club’s dressing rooms.

Interestingly, Kounde has previously been linked with Arsenal, so it will be interesting to see if they decide to make a move for him this winter.

Robert Lewandowski, on the other hand, is past his best at the age of 35. Several Saudi clubs are said to be interested in the former Bayern Munich striker, so he may well end up leaving Barcelona in January, too.
