Xavi Simons has emerged as a top transfer target for Barcelona in recent weeks as the club looks to strengthen their left-wing options ahead of the new season.

The youngster, who left Catalonia for PSG after being denied a guarantee of first-team minutes, reportedly yearns for a return home and has contractual clauses that favour such a move.

However, PSG are keen to retain Simons' services for the upcoming season, especially following Kylian Mbappe's departure. They are firmly against a loan deal and are seeking close to €60 million for a permanent transfer.

Scheduled Meeting

If PSG decide to keep Simons, the youngster will respect the club's decision and not seek to push for a departure.

Should the French giants not include him in their plans, however, Simons has a clause in his contract that allows him to determine his future. In this scenario, Barcelona is his top priority.

According to a recent update from Fabrizio Romano, a meeting has been scheduled between Simons and the PSG administration in the coming weeks. The outcome of these discussions could finalise the youngster’s future.

Exciting Opportunity

The ever-reliable Italian journalist also suggests that Barcelona sees Simons as an amazing opportunity, and rightly so as the youngster’s signing could solve multiple problems for the Catalans.

Simons is an agile, dynamic, and highly versatile option on the wing, comfortable with the ball at his feet and possessing a certain flair that is hard to come by.

Furthermore, one must also consider that the young Dutchman would arrive on a hypothetical loan, thus saving the club a significant sum in terms of transfer fees come June.
