Who is Arthur Cabral?
Barcelona’s brand new head coach Xavi Hernandez seems to have his eyes set on the Brazilian Arthur Cabral. The center forward who currently plays for FC Basel in the Swiss Super League will be Barcelona’s main priority for January. Xavi is completely aware that their main issue now is the lack of goals coming in their games.
Barcelona only scored once in his first two games in charge. Reinforcements are vital for Barcelona if they want to get out of the tight situation they are right in now. Xavi has no choice but to deal with what he has until the New Year transfer window. Barcelona are laying low on the LaLiga table and on the brink of exit from the Champions League with a probable must win game against Bayern Munich.
Barcelona and Xavi must somehow make it through until the mid-season break until they can make any new signings. Barcelona are attentive to Xavi’s desires and the name they have on top of the shortlist right now is Arthur Cabral. The Brazilian has landed in the scorecards ever since he entered European football from Palmeiras. The man already has 24 goals from 25 games this season, which is exactly the kind of consistency that Barca is desperate for.
How instrumental will Arthur Cabral be in reforming Barca’s glory next year? How important do you think this transfer would be? Is the Brazilian the right choice?
