Stoke City have completed the signing of 19-year-old winger Moha El Ouriachi from Barcelona, with the youngster reportedly rejecting the offer of a new deal from the Spanish giants.
News that the deal had been agreed was confirmed on the Potters’ official website, and Moha could make his debut for his new club in Wednesday's Asia Trophy clash with Everton.
Here's a look at what he can offer:
“He’s excited about joining a Premier League club, especially one that already has two former Barcelona players in their squad,” said Stoke City Chief Executive Tony Scholes in the aforementioned piece. “Moha has seen the progress made by Bojan and Marc and wants to try and do likewise.”
Indeed, Moha will link up with former La Masia starlets Marc Muniesa and Bojan Krkic at the Britannia Stadium, with Stoke boss Mark Hughes clearly keen to build a core of talented and technical young stars.
The teenager may not be ready for first-team football quite yet, but he’ll provide an exciting edge to Stoke’s forward line should he get a chance to impress. He looks like an exciting talent in the long term, and Barcelona’s own intentions to keep hold of Moha are a measure of the potential he possesses.
