Barcelona identify teenage Bundesliga winger as alternative to Nico Williams

Barcelona are looking to bring in a left winger this summer, and Athletic Club’s Nico Williams is causing plenty of excitement at Euro 2024. However with money tight in Catalonia, and Williams unlikely to come cheap, the Blaugrana are working on lower cost alternatives.

The first to emerge was Hull City’s Jaden Philogene, with Sporting Director Deco reportedly trying to put together a loan with an obligation to buy depending on objectives being met, a deal that would come to somewhere between €20m and €23m. Another of the alternatives to Luis Diaz or Williams identified is Borussia Dortmund winger Jamie Bynoe-Gittens.

The 19-year-old winger is growing in importance for Dortmund, and made 34 appearances this season. An under-21 international with England, Bynoe-Gittens gave 8 assists and scored twice in those appearances, but just 16 of those were starts.

A potential cost is not mentioned by Sport, but it seems unlikely Dortmund would be willing to let him leave on the cheap. His stock is likely to continue growing, and they no doubt see him as a real candidate to challenge Karim Adeyemi for his spot on the left side. He does clearly have plenty of talent though.
