Barcelona in surprise link with Juventus striker
Whilst the Catalan club are preparing for Wednesday’s Spanish Super Cup Final against Atletico Madrid reports in Spain are surfacing that once the match is over the club will focus on acquiring another striker before the transfer window closes.
However, even though the 28-year-old only joined the Bianconeri this summer the his name was the surprise inclusion in the list of potential targets reported by Mundo Deportivo also containing Oscar Cardozo, Lucas Barrios and Atletico’s Adrian Lopez.
According to sources in Spain a deal for any of those named must be financial viable for Barcelona as new coach Tata Martino is otherwise satisfied with his current squad.
