Barcelona has been officially handled by Xavi Hernandez, a former midfielder for the Catalan team who returned to Camp Nou to become the architect of the new team to replace the sacked Ronald Koeman.
Xavi Hernandez has a difficult task at Barcelona . He must be able to bring back the performance and achievements of Barcelona, which is currently ranked ninth in the Spanish La Liga standings.
The former Al Sadd coach is expected to be able to boost Barcelona’s performance. One sector that needs to be addressed by Xavi is the front line.
Barcelona is less sharp after being left by Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez. So far the Blaugrana have only scored 21 goals in 16 matches in all competitions.
A number of strikers are likely to be brought in by Barcelona in the January transfer market. Who are they?
Alexandre Lacazette has performed quite well for Arsenal. He has scored 68 goals and provided 29 assists in 178 appearances for the Gunners.
However, Lacazette looks closer to the end of his career with Arsenal. His contract expires in the summer of 2022 and so far there is no sign of a new deal being signed.
Considering his expiring contract, the French player’s price is quite affordable. Lacazette can be a reliable player on the front lines of Barcelona .
Dani Olmo is a versatile player in attack. The Spanish national team player is able to operate as an attacking midfielder or on both wings.
Olmo has put in an amazing performance with RB Leipzig. He has scored 12 goals and provided 14 assists since joining the club in January 2020.
Olmo is a graduate of the Barcelona academy . The 23-year-old doesn’t seem to mind returning to Barcelona.
Anthony Martial endured a difficult period at Manchester United. Martial is increasingly excluded after the Red Devils recruited Cristiano Ronaldo.
This season, Martial has scored just one goal in seven appearances in all competitions. The French player is clearly not included in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans at Old Trafford.
Leaving Manchester United could save Martial’s career. The former AS Monaco player could be an alternative on Barcelona ‘s front lines .
Dusan Vlahovic is a mainstay player in Fiorentina’s front line. The Serbian striker was able to show an impressive performance in Serie A.
Vlahovic has now scored 39 goals for Fiorentina in 97 appearances. The 21 – year – old player has also provided five assists .
Throughout the 2021/2022 season, Vlahovic has scored 10 goals from 13 matches in various competitions. Sharp in front of goal, Vlahovic will be a great addition to Barcelona’s front line .
Andrea Belloti has played with Torino since 2015. The Italian national team bomber has impressed for the club from the city of Turin.
During his six years with Torino, Belloti has scored 107 goals and 27 assists in 236 appearances. He also scored 12 goals in 39 appearances for the Italian national team.
Barcelona can bring him to Camp Nou at a low price in the January transfer market.
