Angel Rodriguez says he is focused on Getafe’s next match amid rumors linking him with a move to Barcelona.

FC Barcelona recently confirmed that Ousmane Dembele has joined Luis Suarez in the long-term injury list and will remain sidelined until the next season.

As a result, as per our earlier report, Barcelona might be able to sign a new attacker outside the transfer window.

Getafe forward Angel Rodriguez is one of the few players that Barcelona are reportedly considering signing. Angel has scored 9 goals and has 2 assists in La Liga this season.

Ahead of Getafe’s clash against Barcelona, the 32-year acknowledged the rumors linking him to his upcoming opponents.

The Getafe number-9, however, insisted that he is paying no heed to them. Moreover, he added that he was eager to snatch all three points in their upcoming match with Barca.

“What I know is from the press,” Angel stated as per Marca.

“I am informed about it by you [the journalists] and that’s it. There is nothing; I am at Getafe and I am focused on my team. As it’s only rumors and nobody has talked to me, I am calm. When that happens, I will have time to think things over.

“Now, I am thinking about taking points away from the Camp Nou.”
