Barcelona are trying to land Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund. However, they can also glance at several strikers whose qualities are not much different if they fail to recruit the Norwegian national team player.
Barcelona have appeared quite productive under Xavi Hernandez lately. Even so, the Blaugrana seems still not satisfied with the front line.
Next season, Barcelona reportedly still wants to bring in a new striker. Haaland’s name is reportedly included in Barcelona’s recruitment list in the summer transfer market.
However, it is predicted that the Blaugrana will find it difficult to recruit Haaland. Because the price of the Norwegian player is quite expensive and many clubs want his services.
Barcelona must look for other alternatives if it is difficult to recruit Erling Haaland. Here are five strikers the Blaugrana could consider.
Patrik Schick – Patrik Schick has defended Bayern Leverkusen since being recruited from AS Roma in 2020. As far as the 2021/2022 season goes, Schick is irreplaceable on the front lines of Die Werkself.
Schick is showing a pretty good performance with his club. The Czech Republic striker has scored 20 goals in 20 Bundesliga matches.
Schick’s sharpness was able to boost Leverkusen’s position in the Bundesliga standings. Die Werkself are now in third place in Germany’s elite competition.
Andre Silva – Last season, Andre Silva had a slick goal record with Eintracht Frankfurt. He scored a total of 29 goals and 10 assists for Frankfurt and was runner-up top scorer in the Bundesliga last season.
Even so, Silva decided to end his togetherness with Die Adler in the summer of 2021. He joined RB Leipzig for a transfer fee of 23 million euros.
Silva’s goal record with his new club so far is arguably not bad. The Portuguese player has scored 15 goals and provided eight assists from 38 matches in all competitions.
Alexander Isak – Alexander Isak is one of the best young talents in Europe right now. The Swedish striker has appeared promising since joining Real Sociedad in 2019.
So far, Isak has collected 41 goals from 121 matches with the Spanish club. His great talent began to be glimpsed by top European clubs.
Isak is very familiar with the atmosphere of La Liga. The 22-year-old striker may not take long to adapt to Barcelona.
Darwin Nunez – Darwin Nunez is a mainstay player on the front lines of Benfica. The Uruguayan striker has shown a very impressive performance this season.
Barcelona is a club that has fallen victim to Darwin Nunez’s ferocity. The 22-year-old scored twice against the Blaugrana in this season’s Champions League group stage match.
So far this season, Darwin Nunez has scored 25 goals and provided two assists from 32 games in all competitions. He is still under contract with his club until 2025.
