Barcelona look set to invest heavily again this summer, but there’s a bit of debate about exactly who will be the club’s highest-profile signing.

Antoine Griezmann is expected to be it and has long been linked with a €100 million move from Atletico Madrid to Barcelona.

However, rumours surrounding Christian Eriksen have been picking up speed, and now Sport claim that the Tottenham star is Barcelona’s ‘Plan B’ if they miss out on Griezmann.

The report follows on from Mundo Deportivo producing a couple of reports about how Eriksen has been trying to find out just how interested Barcelona are in his services.

If Barca do miss out on Griezmann the report reckons that Eriksen could be signed as a replacement for Andres Iniesta, with Philippe Coutinho moving further forwards.

Eriksen would therefore come into midfield alongside Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic, with Coutinho forming a frontline with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez (Ousmane Dembele isn’t mentioned at all).

Of course prising Eriksen away from Tottenham looks a really tough ask and it’s still all rumours at this point - but it does make an interesting question of which player would be best for Barcelona.
