Arsenal transfer news takes a look at how the club could be affected by Barcelona’s plans
Barcelona are reportedly on the market for a Luis Suarez replacement.
The Uruguay international has been an outstanding servant at the Camp Nou following his £75m transfer from Liverpool in the summer of 2014.
In his first season in Spain he helped Barca win the treble – La Liga, Copa del Rey and the Champions League – having forged a devastating forward line alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar.
Suarez has continued to rack up the winner’s medals with the La Liga giants, but he turns 33 in January and it’s time that Barcelona start looking to the future.
Despite having Ousmane Dembele and Antoine Griezmann on the books, it would appear that a natural centre-forward is the target.
And a number of names have been linked with the post.
Mundo Deportivo claim that Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe, Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane, Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino and Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez are on Barcelona’s wishlist.
As is Manchester United and England star Marcus Rashford, although luring him away from Old Trafford might be difficult as he signed a new long-term contract recently.
One name missing from this list is that of PSV Eindhoven’s Donyell Malen and that would be fantastic news for Arsenal and Unai Emery.
