Barcelona are in the market for Luis Suarez replacement. There are four candidates who are in the running to join Bluagrana.
The most promising lead is real wonder kid: Donyell Malen.
The 20 year old striker is shining at PSV Eindhoven, he scored ten goals in nine matches. His price: 66 millions euros.
In case the Malen deal falls through, Barcelona has a plan B: Lautaro Martinez.
The Argentinian has adapted well to Europe since arriving in 2018. He even caught the eye of Lionel Messi. During the Barcelona-Inter Milan game, Leo Messi was in awe. La Pulga may have asked the club to go after Martinez.
But the 22-year old players agent Javier Zanetti does not want to sell him.
“He is doing very well at Inter and we are targeting contract extension.” Zanetti said earlier this month.
Another very credible candidate: Rafael Leao. As you have realized by now, Barcelona want to sign a rising star. And at 20 years old, the AC Milan striker is definitely a rising star.
He showed potential at Lille, but is really shinning in Italy. The directors were actually won over by this profile. As technical as he is strong, Leao is all around player a bit like Luis Suarez. But AC Milan could ask 44 million euros.
The last player who could potentially replace Luis Suarez : Victor Osimhen.
The Nigerian striker dazzled fans since joining Lille. Barcelona like his exceptional ability to find the back of the net. As it happens Lille are already looking to sell.
Luis Campos, adviser to the Lille president told Sky Sports: “If everything goes well at the end of the season, we will get huge transfer fee for him because he is like a cat
“He is incredible. He attacks every ball in the last 20 yards, like a cat.”
While Barcelona are looking for a young player with potential, other more experienced players are on the radar: Klylian Mbappe, Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford.
