The former Sassuolo forward is Barcelona’s chosen No 19 to reinforce the attack. Barcelona is going to loan him until the end of the season with an option to buy after that.

The transfer includes a €8 million (£7m/$9m) option to buy, while Barca will pay a €2m loan fee for Boateng to feature for them the remainder of the season.

Formed in Hertha Berlin’s junior sides – a team with which he debuted in the Bundesliga -, Boateng has played in four of the five major European leagues wearing the shirts of Tottenham, Portsmouth, Milan, Schalke, Eintracht Frankfurt, Las Palmas and Sassuolo, the team from which he arrives to Barcelona.

The son of a Ghanaian and a German, and the older brother of Bayern centre-back, Jérôme Boateng, the 31-year-old forward was an international in Germany’s lower categories until he achieved dual German-Ghanaian nationality in 2010.
