Barcelona reportedly remain keen to land Erling Haaland this summer but have also come up with a pretty big list of alternatives in case they miss out on the Borussia Dortmund forward.

There are some familiar names on the list including Lautaro Martinez, who was wanted last summer, as well as Inter team-mate Romelu Lukaku, according to Mundo Deportivo.

MD reckon that Inter could be tempted to sell a key man this summer, to ease financial pressures, which could work to Barcelona’s advantage.

Also on Barca’s list are Tottenham’s Harry Kane, who apparently wants to leave the north London club, and Alexander Isak. The Real Sociedad forward has been linked with Barca previously and has a €70m release clause in his contract.

The report also mentions Juventus star Paulo Dybala as well as the familiar names of Sergio Aguero and Memphis Depay. Benfica’s Darwin Nunez is also name-checked as a player Barca wanted last summer because he moved to the Portuguese side.

It seems clear that Barca will do all they can to bring in an attacker this summer, although at this point we are still no clearer to knowing who that might be. Don’t forget the club must first free up some room in the squad and on the wage bill before any new players arrive.
