It has not been even a month since he was appointed as head coach of the Catalan giants, but Xavi appears to have a clear understanding of what he wants to achieve with the club he represented with such excellence as a player.
Despite Barcelona's dire financial situation, Xavi and president Joan Laporta could look to conduct some smart business in the next window so as to improve their chances of qualifying for next season's UEFA Champions League, as per Sport.
It has been reported by the Spanish publication and various other news outlets that the 2010 FIFA World Cup winner's priority target is Manchester City forward Ferran Torres.
The former Valencia winger has impressed in various moments since his arrival in England in 2020, but a lengthy foot injury he sustained in October could make it difficult for him to re-establish himself within the squad.
At international level, the 21-year-old has proved a key player for Spain coach Luis Enrique, having scored 12 goals in 22 matches for La Furia Roja since he made his debut in September last year.
Chelsea striker Timo Werner and Red Bull Salzburg's Karim Adeyemi are said to be other attacking targets for Xavi, whom Sport reports will have more influence than the board in deciding which personnel changes will be made to the side.
More attack-minded players feature on the 41-year-old's shortlist, while only one defender – Cesar Azpilicueta – has appeared on his radar. With the right-back-cum-centre-back's Blues contract expiring at the end of the season, Xavi reportedly sees him as a "very attractive" January option.
