Hull City ace wanted by Barcelona this summer

Hull City attacker Jaden Philogene has emerged as a target for Barcelona, according to Spanish news outlet Relevo.

Hull City are facing a battle to keep hold of the winger this summer and he has reportedly planted on the radar of Barcelona as they look to bolster their attacking ranks. He moved to the MKM Stadium last year and has since become one of his side’s most prized assets.

Philogene, 22, has scored 12 goals in 32 games in all competitions for the Tigers to date, as well as picking up six assists. He is under contract with the East Yorkshire outfit until June 2026.

As per Relevo, Barca have ‘already begun’ talks about a potential move for the Londoner. The La Liga giants are apparently keen on an initial loan deal with a view to buy him down the line.

They came 2nd in the league last term to rivals Real Madrid.

Philogene was on the books at Aston Villa from 2018 until 2023 and made six appearances for their first-team.

He was loaned out by the Premier League side to Stoke City and Cardiff City in the Championship to get some experience under his belt.

Hull City then swooped to land him on a permanent basis and he has since been a key player.

They narrowly missed out on the play-offs last term and ended in 7th place, three points off the top six.

Their failure to get in resulted in the sacking of Liam Rosenior and he has since been replaced by former Stuttgart and Hamburg man Tim Walter.

Philogene’s future is up in the air right now and links to other clubs are inevitable over the coming weeks.

What next?

Although he is a player with bags of potential, not many would have expected Barcelona to be credited with an interest.

They could see the England youth international as someone who could become a mainstay in their team over the coming years.

It remains to be seen whether Relevo’s report has concrete substance behind it or whether it is just paper talk for now.
