Barcelona are reportedly keeping tabs on Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Braut Haaland but are none to keen on his €100 million price tag, according to ESPN.

The 19-year-old striker is having a sensational season and has been banging in goals for fun both domestically and in the Champions League and shows no signs of stopping just yet.

Haaland has already been linked with most of Europe’s top clubs, and you can now add Barcelona to the list. The Spanish champions are still searching for a replacement for Luis Suarez and are “keeping a close eye” on the teenager, according to the report.

However, Barcelona also reckon that his price tag is excessive and “not in line with his market value” which may prevent the club from making any move for the striker in the future.
