Getafe striker Angel Rodriguez ‘would be tempted’ by Barcelona move

Getafe striker Angel Rodriguez admits he would be tempted by the possibility to join Barcelona this month if there was an approach.

The Blaugrana will find out if they are allowed by La Liga to sign a contracted player from another Spanish club this month following a long-term injury for Ousmane Dembele, who will not feature again this campaign.

That followed on from a similar season-ending injury to main striker Luis Suarez, while Abel Ruiz and Carles Perez were both sold by the Catalan giants last month.

Angel has scored 39 goals for Los Azulones since joining from Real Zaragoza in the summer of 2017 on a free transfer, proving somewhat of a scoring revelation since.

He has a release clause of €10m and the Blaugrana could be able to land him despite the transfer window being officially closed.

“What I know is what has come out in the press. There is nothing else at the moment,” Angel is cited as saying by Diario Sport.

“I am calm and focused on Getafe. I am giving my everything for this club and in principle there is nothing.

“When the news is from a great club like Barcelona, ​​the repercussion is greater, but since they are only rumours, I am very calm.

“If they talked with me I will have time to think about things. I have several markets with Getafe and people always talk about rumours. That means I am doing things right.

“Of course it is something you would have to think about.”

The Spaniard helped propel Getafe into Europe this season and he has netted three times in four starts in the Europa League this campaign.

The striker has netted 106 league goals across his career in Spanish football to date and has nine in just six La Liga starts to date this season for Jose Bordalas’s side.
