Nico Gonzalez is expected to complete his move to Valencia soon according to Fabrizio Romano. The Spanish club have already reached a full agreement with Barcelona over a season-long loan with the ambition of giving the young midfielder more game-time.

Gennaro Gattuso has already called Nico and explained the project he’s building at Mestalla to the 20-year-old. The Italian coach, who took over from Jose Bordalas this summer, is also keen on signing former Sevilla winger Bryan Gil on loan from Tottenham Hotspur – but that deal is some way from completion.

Valencia finished ninth in La Liga last season and will hope to be in the conversation for a European place in 2022/23. Signing young, hungry players like Nico is how Gattuso intends to achieve that ambition. The Galician broke into Barcelona’s first-team at the beginning of last season and has made 36 appearances to date, contributing two goals and two assists.
