The number of options available on the market to strengthen the forward line at Barcelona is incredible. With every passing day comes a new profile that could serve the purpose.

Given the sheer number of options on the market, the board of the Catalan club are working overtime to find the best choice.

The ideal player should not only be able to fit into the dynamics of Xavi Hernandez’s team but must also be clinical in front of goal. Moreover, any replacement must come at an economical price.

Mundo Deportivo report that four options from the Premier League sit on the tables in Joan Laporta’s office as potential signings. The idea at the club is to sign one player on loan, with an option to purchase at the end of the season.

The first name headlining the list is Raheem Sterling. The winger was in pole position to sign for the Spanish side earlier in the month. However, economic disagreements seem to have put the move in doubt.

Further, the winger has scored two goals in his last two outings and made a resurgence into Guardiola’s team. The chances of Sterling staying at Etihad are higher than ever before.

Timo Werner is the second option on the table. The German winger has not enjoyed life in the Premier League. Roman Abramovich is reportedly willing to negotiate the striker’s exit after Lukaku’s successful start at Stamford Bridge. However, the deal will not come cheap.

Edinson Cavani is the third name on the list. The Manchester United forward has had minutes in only eight games this season. His fall in prominence after Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival has him reconsidering his future at the club.

Jesse Lingard is the final choice that Barcelona are looking at in the Premier League. The English player has not seen many minutes despite his successful loan spell last season. Given that his contract runs down in the summer, Barcelona could look to sign him for free.
