Barcelona manager Xavi reportedly wants to strike a January deal for Al-Sadd striker Baghdad Bounedjah amid the Blaugrana's injury woes up top.

New Barcelona manager Xavi is reportedly keen to bring Al-Sadd striker Baghdad Bounedjah to the club in January.

The Blaugrana have faced several injury crises in attack this term, with long-term victims Martin Braithwaite and Sergio Aguero depleting Xavi's options up top.

Barcelona are therefore expected to seek out attacking reinforcements in the January transfer window, with Karim Adeyemi and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both mentioned as possible targets.

Now, Fichajes claims that Xavi has set his sights on a reunion with Al-Sadd's Bounedjah, who boasts a staggering record from his time with the Qatari side.

The Algeria international has scored 159 goals and set up 44 more in 153 games for Al-Sadd, as well as netting 22 times in 49 appearances for his country.

Bounedjah finished as the top scorer in the 2020-21 Qatar Stars League with 21 goals, and his deal with Xavi's former side is due to expire in 2024.
