Barcelona forward Ferran Torres is once again on Atletico Madrid’s radar, with a potential January bid in the works.
Torres, who joined Barcelona from Manchester City in January 2022 for €55 million, has faced challenges in securing regular playing time. While he started the current season well, scoring four goals in ten appearances, his future at Barcelona remains uncertain.
Atletico Madrid had shown interest in the Spaniard during the summer transfer window, but he chose to stay at Barca. However, the report suggests that Atletico may make another attempt to sign him in January. Given Torres’s long-term contract with Barcelona running until June 30, 2027, Atletico may have to pay a premium for his services, possibly around the €55 million Barcelona initially paid.
Notably, the 23-year-old striker is also attracting interest from Premier League clubs like Newcastle United. This situation sets the stage for a competitive race to secure his services in the coming weeks.
It remains to be seen whether Torres will make a move to Atletico Madrid in the upcoming transfer window, but his future is certainly one to watch in the football transfer market.
