Barcelona’s priority striker target for summer window revealed

Barcelona’s priority striker target for summer window revealed

Barcelona’s fall from grace

It is fair to say that FC Barcelona have experienced a rather large fall from grace over the last couple of years.

The Blaugrana once had one of, if not the most revered front-three in all of Europe in the form of Neymar, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi.

Neymar was then sold to PSG whilst an ageing Suarez was somewhat bizarrely shipped off to Atletico Madrid, who won La Liga in the Uruguayan’s debut campaign at the club.

By far the biggest blow came earlier this summer, though, when Lionel Messi departed the Camp Nou for PSG.

Barca now have an ageing, injury-prone Sergio Aguero, former Middlesbrough striker Martin Braithwaite, Memphis Depay and Luuk de Jong – who scored four goals in 34 league outings last term – as their striker options.

Barcelona targets for summer

So, it is fair to say that Barcelona could probably do with adding some more quality up top in the near future.

And now it appears that the Spanish powerhouse are planning to do just that. As per a report from Gerard Romero this weekend, Erling Haaland is the Blaugrana’s no.1 forward target for next summer.

If Haaland cannot be secured, it is claimed that Dusan Vlahovic is Barca’s 2nd option:
