Everton midfielder Amadou Onana would be 'delighted' to join Barcelona this summer, according to a report from Sport.

Onana's future at Everton has come under scrutiny amid the club's need to comply with Premier League profit and sustainability rules. As a result, Everton may be forced to sell some of their key players, including Onana, to balance their books. This financial pressure has opened the door for potential suitors, with Barcelona reportedly leading the chase for the talented midfielder.

Barcelona's interest in Onana is largely driven by their new manager, Hansi Flick, who is said to be a huge admirer of the young midfielder. Flick sees Onana as a perfect fit for his tactical plans, given the player's versatility, physicality, and technical ability. Onana's potential move to the Camp Nou would provide Barcelona with a dynamic presence in the midfield, complementing their existing roster.

Despite Onana's eagerness to join Barcelona, several challenges remain in completing the transfer. One of the main hurdles is whether Barcelona can meet Everton's financial demands. The Catalan club, while keen on securing Onana's services, must look at their own financial constraints. With their focus on balancing the books and adhering to La Liga's financial regulations, Barcelona will need to negotiate a deal that satisfies Everton's valuation. Onana has played a key role in helping Everton avoid relegation. So, if he wants to move to a club of his dreams, Everton should not oppose to that.
