Barcelona have reportedly been in touch with Lyon striker Moussa Dembele as they seek a replacement for Luis Suarez.
The Catalan giants had been expected to bring in Lautaro Martinez as Suarez’s replacement but talks have stalled and the Argentine’s high price is a problem for Barca.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Barcelona now appear to have turned to Dembele as a possible reinforcement in attack.
Henrik Larsson, who has recently arrived at Barcelona as Ronald Koeman’s assistant, has been in contact with the 24-year-old.
New Barcelona manager Koeman has apparently “given his blessing” to Dembele potentially arriving at the Camp Nou this summer.
Dembele scored 20 goals in 42 games for Lyon in 2019-20, including two against Manchester City in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
