Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger discussed Barcelona this week. In a discussion with Bein Sports, Arsene said that despite Antoine Griezmann’s arrival, Barcelona need more production at the top of the formation.

“Barcelona has always bought the greatest players. Personally, I’m not sure that Suarez needs to be replaced,” he said.

“They can add another striker because it’s true that Suarez and [Lionel] Messi are the main contributors and they might need somebody else who can score goals.

“I still think Griezmann at some stage will start to score goals, he doesn’t look completely adapted, maybe now after confinement he will be refreshed because he’s a good goalscorer as well.

“But I’m convinced they will buy another striker as well.”

Barcelona have been consistently linked with Lautaro Martinez in the last few months. The additional striker that Wenger is convinced they’re going to sign might just be on Inter Milan.
