Barcelona Set to Sign Benfica’s Semedo
Barcelona’s hunt for a new right back seem to be ending in a sweet fashion as the Catalan side are close to finalize the deal for Portugal international, Nelson Semedo.
The Spanish giant announced that they already reached an agreement with Portuguese outfit, Benfica, to sign Semedo this summer, pending medical check up which is scheduled to be held on Friday.
Announcing that agreement via their official website, Barca heaps praises towards their potential new right back, though the Catalan outfit didn’t mention the actual fee for their upcoming transfer.
Semedo is an attacking minded full back which certainly has that characteristic Barcelona are searching for even since they let Dani Alves leave couple of seasons back.
Always being linked with Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin, it seems that Barca opted another route instead and secure the young Portuguese instead since deal for the Arsenal defender seems difficult.
The 23-year-old Portuguese defender will surely be expected to finally be that man they can count on to fly up and down from that right hand side of Barcelona’s setup, combining mostly with Lionel Messi.
Baring major complications with his medical test, it’s pretty much save to know that Semedo is set to be El Barca’s new arrival this summer.
