Successes of the young Argentinean have not gone ignored. His status as a future rising star was further cemented when he appeared on The Guardian’s prestigious “Next Generation” list in 2021.

The club’s strategic plan to find South American players with enormous long-term potential is compatible with Brighton’s pursuit of the Argentine. Julio Enciso, Facundo Buonanotte, Moises Caicedo, and Alexis Mac Allister were notable signings throughout the course of the previous five summer transfer windows from illustrious clubs in the area.


Players like Caicedo and Mac Allister are now famous instances of Brighton’s success in discovering and fostering youthful talent. These players were later sold to prestigious clubs for large sums of money. Under the direction of manager Roberto De Zerbi, it is predicted that Barco’s career trajectory will continue a similar course of development, along with other talented players like Enciso and Buonanotte who are still with the team.

The possible signing of a highly regarded young player offers the promise of bringing a new dimension to the Seagulls’ defensive strength as negotiations move forward and anticipation grows. It is only a matter of time before we may see him at the top of the list for some of the greatest clubs in the world given their reputation for developing talent and his clear potential.
