11 Most important players in the Barcelona squad now

11 Most important players in the Barcelona squad now

With the transfer window close and Barcelona losing a lot of big-name due to their financial problem e360hubs will look at the most important and influential players currently in the Barca squad

1. Frenkie de Jong
Frenkie de Jong is starting his third season at Barcelona and everything indicates that he will remain an untouchable player.

Unlike some of his teammates, the Dutchman is very consistent, delivering solid performances week in and week out no matter the position he's used in.

2. Pedri
Despite playing 73 matches in the previous season and having almost no rest over the summer, Pedri was nevertheless a starter in the Catalans' first two official matches of the season.

The 18-year-old will soon return from his much-deserved holiday and we can expect him to be back at his best.

3. Memphis Depay
He joined us only this summer, but Memphis Depay already seems at home at Camp Nou. The new leader of Barca's attack, the Dutchman recorded two goals and an assist this term so far.

With other attackers expected back from injury in the near future, Memphis is bound to receive more support upfront, and we should expect his performances to only go up.

4. Marc-Andre ter Stegen
Some fans have been calling Marc-Andre ter Stegen the 'captain without the armband' for a few years now, and there's a lot of truth to it, as his leadership qualities are evident on the pitch.

The German has recovered from his injury and looked solid against Getafe, especially regarding his passing. The defence always looks more confident passing the ball around when Ter Stegen is between the sticks.

5. Gerard Pique
Because of his experience, Gerard Pique remains the leader of our defence. Although he might be inferior physically to Ronald Araujo or not as quick as he used to be, the backline functions better when Pique is on the pitch.

6. Ronald Araujo
The Uruguayan offers what the likes of Pique, Eric Garcia or Clement Lenglet can't — physicality. He might not be ready to lead the defence on his own, but Araujo thrives in the supporting role no matter who his partner is.

7. Sergio Busquets
Years go by but the Catalans are yet to find a proper replacement for Sergio Busquets, and that's in big part because of the unique profile he possesses.

His on-point passing, his positioning and the ability to read the game make the 'Octopus from Badia' an important piece of the puzzle at Barca.

8. Ansu Fati
Ansu Fati would have definitely been higher on the list if not for his long-term injury. However, the eagerness with which the fans want to see the 18-year-old back on the pitch only speaks of his insane quality.

As the new no.10, there's a lot of pressure on Fati's young shoulders, but he doesn't seem to be fazed by it.

9. Jordi Alba
Losing Leo Messi will take its toll on his game as not many duos come close to the level of understanding that Jordi Alba and Leo had on the pitch.

But we've seen the left-back play well for the national team, and he's already registered an assist this term, so we are sure that Alba has still got a lot to offer.

10. Sergino Dest
Ronald Koeman seems to trust Sergino Dest a lot, otherwise Blaugrana wouldn't have sold Emerson Royal as quickly. And the coach has certainly got his reasons to do so, as Dest seems to have improved both defensively and offensively in comparison to last season.

11. Sergio Roberto
Sergi Roberto seems to be Barca's 12th player, as he is one of the first ones to come off the bench during matches or replace injured teammates in the starting XI.

The 29-year-old seems to be on good terms with Koeman, let's see if this will benefit his performances. (And his two goals this season so far do suggest that)
