Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu spoke about the club’s search for a striker on Monday and says the Catalan giants will bring in a new player before the close of the transfer window.

Luis Suarez has been ruled out for four months after undergoing knee surgery leaving Barca short of options in attack, and there are rumors the club are closing in on a move for Valencia’s Rodrigo.

Bartomeu wouldn’t talk about the Spain international but said Barca could bring in a new player or promote someone from Barcelona B.

”We don’t talk about players from other teams. But [Rodrigo’s] name is on the table of the coaches.”

“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.”

Barcelona only have a few days left in the transfer market to complete a signing, and the latest rumors suggest they are yet to find an agreement with Valencia for Rodrigo.
