Barcelona superstar Luis Suarez isn’t getting older and the Catalan giants have made a four-man shortlist to replace their superb number 9.
Striker plays a critical part in football. The margin of error is very less. You have to finish everything that comes your way into the net. Now, when we talk about Barcelona and a striker, who comes to the mind? Luis Suarez. Barca boasts a lineup of beasts in the form of Leo Messi, Phillipe Coutinho, etc.
Notably, all these figures have more jobs to do on the field. When Luis Suarez fails, someone has to cover up for him. If you don’t, then be ready to face ready.
Now, in such a case leaves a huge gap in multiple positions on the pitch. Barcelona has reportedly drawn up a shortlist of four players who can replace Luis Suarez next season. Reports from Diario Gol suggest, Barcelona is looking to get rid of the Uruguayan striker should he fail to rediscover his long-lost form.
The Four Man List
Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane
He faced criticism for winning an undeservingly deserved Golden Boot in the recently concluded World Cup. One of the most talented strikers today, he possesses the cutting edge in the final half of the pitch. If he comes to Barcelona, expect some fireworks in La Liga and Champions League as well.
Ascending like a boss. It took him just one season to gain recognition even in the eyes of non-football fans. We hope he continues to perform the same in future. Coming to the situation, rumors are all in the air regarding Salah to Barca. Scoring 44 goals in a season and leading Liverpool to Champions League final, he may become the final piece in the Barcelona’s CL puzzle.
Timo Werner’s performance in the World Cup was a big let down for Germany and football fans as a whole. But here we talk about club football. You don’t perform only for a few weeks, you perform week in week out, year in year out. Werner has that. Also, age is in his favor. He performs for RB Leipzig, and if he comes to Camp Nou, consider him to be the future of Barcelona’s goalscoring prowess.
A winger cum striker. His performances for PSV last year made him an invaluable asset in the football industry. He netted 17 goals and claimed 11 assists in 29 games. Also, he is the one who can play it the Barcelona way more easily than other candidates.
Given the approaching transfer deadline of La Liga, none of these transfer looks likely to happen. However, should Suarez waste chances yet again, Barcelona can offload him in the winter transfer window. Now, coming towards the candidates, Salah is hands down the best among all but if you consider the feasibility and other factors, Hirving Lozano is the best shot for the Blaugrana at this point.
