Grzegorz Krychowiak is playing another season in the Arab league. Years ago he showed his good side in Sevilla. It turns out that the Spanish media remember his performances well. The midfielder was on the list of potential replacements for Gavi at FC Barcelona.
Grzegorz Krychowiak joined Abha Club before the season. The team was then led by the former coach of the Polish national team, Czesław Michniewicz. However, the coach’s adventure with the Arabian Peninsula did not last very long. However, Krychowiak remained with the team and after the end of his representative career, he can only focus on playing for the club.
Grzegorz Krychowiak the hero of an unexpected transfer?
Unexpectedly, Krychowiak found himself in the Spanish media again. The former Sevilla player, with whom he won the Europa League, was included among the candidates for Gavi’s temporary replacement at FC Barcelona by the “Mundo Deportivo” daily. The young player of Xavi’s team tore the cruciate ligament in his right leg, which means he will miss the entire current season and EURO 2024. The pride of Catalonia has serious shortcomings in midfield, which is why he needs reinforcements “immediately”.
Oriol Romeu, who has naturally taken on more responsibilities, is not doing well. However, Barca wants to make a cheap or preferably free transfer. Therefore, Krychowiak could be a cheap alternative to wait out the difficult period. The newspaper’s journalists describe the Pole as a player who has already had the best moments of his career, but is in good shape in the Arab league. It is worth recalling that the player of the Pride of Catalonia is the captain of the Polish team, Robert Lewandowski.
“Although his best moments are over, this season he can boast of a very good performance in the Saudi Abha. He played 20 matches (1,721 minutes), scored three goals and made an assist,” the journalists wrote.
Candidates to strengthen FC Barcelona
Krychowiak has a valid contract with the club until the end of the current season, which makes it easy to acquire him. In addition to the Pole, the Spanish newspaper lists among the candidates Renato Sanches, Kalvin Phillips, Andrey Santos, Thomas Partey, Pierre-Emile Hojberg and Yann M’Villa.
