The return of Kays Ruiz-Atil, the signing of Yusuf Demir, who arrived in the summer, the deal to sign Emre Demir, who will join from Kayserispor next year are only a few examples of the Catalans’ renewed focus on young talent.
And, it seems like the club have found another special youngster who they are keen on signing in the form of Europa League engaged, Eintracht Frankfurt’s Fabio Blanco, as per SPORT (h/t Fichajes).
The 17-year-old came through the youth ranks at Barcelona’s fellow La Liga outfit, Valencia, and had registered on the Catalans’ radars during the summer, along with several other top clubs.
However, Eintracht beat everyone to the punch by securing the 17-year-old winger’s signing on a free transfer, on a two-year contract. Since moving to Germany, Blanco has featured five times for the club’s Under-19 setup, scoring two goals and setting up one more.
