Despite the success achieved by Barcelona this season­, they have had a difficult time. Making it Copa Del Rey finals, qualification for the round-of-16 in the Champions League and currently being at the second place on the La Liga table did not come easy for the Spanish club.

They have had numerous loss along the way and have not being at their best and their major shortcoming lies in the midfield. Andres Iniesta has been unavailable due to injury, Sergio Busquet’s performance on the other hand have not been up to par. Andre Gomes have had a challenging time trying to be significant in the team and Denis Suarez has lost his midfield skill.

To continue in their successful ways, the Blaugrana would need to fortify their midfield in the coming transfer window. Here we bring you three options the Spanish club could consider.

Mahmoud Dahoud

The 21-year-old who plays as a midfielder for Borussia Mönchengladbach has been a Liverpool target for a long time now and was also watched by Barcelona in the January transfer window and Luis Enrique might as well make a move for him.

Dahoud, a skillful midfielder, has one goal and two assist to his name. The German midfielder also possess a long range of passing and is always innovative on the pitch.

With Sergio Busquets’ recent underperformance Dahoud would go a long way in complementing the Spaniard.

Bernardo Silva

The Monaco midfielder has been critically acclaimed for his performance in the Ligue 1. Silva in 31 appearances this season for Monaco has netted 7 goals and 5 assists.

He could be the perfect replacement for Arda Turan who is rumored to be moving to China.

Julian Weigl

The German midfielder transferred to Borussia Dortmund from 1860 Munich. He has caught the eye of many big clubs with his remarkable play.

His good form earned him a starting place in Dortmund and helped them finish 2nd in the Bundesliga. Having made 18 Bundesliga appearances, Weigl has been admirable, making 43 interceptions and 22 clearances. His style of play is similar to that of Busquets in that he excels at breaking down opposition plays, has accurate passing ability and rarely relinquish possession of the ball.

Weigl should definitely be considered as an option to reinforce their midfield.
