Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has confirmed the club are interested in signing Valencia forward Rodrigo Moreno.

The LaLiga giants are searching for attacking reinforcements with Luis Suárez ruled out for at least three months.

Rodrigo has long been under the radar for Barça and Bartomeu admits they will bring in a replacement this window.

“We don’t talk about players from other teams,” he told Marca. “But his (Rodrigo) name is on the table.

“And a replacement will arrive. I do not know whether it will be from Barcelona B or from outside the club.

“I like many players and our discussions can continue.”

Barcelona next host Leganés on Thursday in the Copa del Rey.
