Barcelona are mentioned to be hunting at signing West Ham forward Sebastien Haller as a back-up alternative should really they fail to bring in Argentine striker Lautaro Martinez.
According to Don Balon, Barca are in the hunt for a Luis Suarez replacement contemplating the Uruguayan is quickly approaching the finish of his profession, with the Blaugrana eyeing Martinez as the player they want to replace him.
It is also noted that Barca are ready in case their pursuit of the Argentine falls flat, as they’re also hunting at West Ham ace Haller, as nicely as Flamengo forward Gabriel Barbosa.
Haller has carried on the type he displayed for Eintracht Frankfurt final term considering the fact that his move to West Ham, nevertheless provided the form of player he is, we do not feel Barca should really be going immediately after him at all.
The Frenchman is a tall, physical striker who relies on his strength and stature to bully opposition defenders, which is coincidentally the form of striker that is never ever seriously succeeded at the Nou Camp.
The final forward of that sort to play for Barca was Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a player who struggled dearly in the course of his time with the Spanish giants, ultimately leaving immediately after just 12 months in La Liga.
Martinez would be a terrific, like for like replacement for Suarez, and provided that the club are set to go for Haller should really they miss out on him, we’re certain Barca fans will be desperate to see their side land the Argentine even much more in the close to future…
