Barcelona are set to turn their attentions to West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini with the growing frustration at the lack of transfers, according to reports.
The Catalan club are facing a losing battle in their pursuit of Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele.
SunSport exclusively revealed that Barca are ready to launch a fourth and final bid of £136million to land Coutinho this summer.
But the Reds still insist the Brazilian will stay at Anfield leaving Barcelona to look elsewhere to bolster their attacking options.
Likewise with Borussia Dortmund’s Dembele, the club are struggling to agree a fee with the Bundesliga outfit having had a £119m bid rejected.
And now it appears Ernesto Valverde’s side will target Argentine stars Lanzini and Angel Di Maria.
According to reports in Argentina, Lanzini’s versatility in attacking positions make him an attractive option for the manager.
But he is likely to make most of his impact from the substitute bench if he does agree to a move to the Nou Camp.
🚨 EXCLUSIVE OFFER: Premier League Top Goalscorer 🚨
ROMELU LUKAKU has come in to 2/1 to finish as the Premier League top scorer.
The Belgian scored twice against West Ham on Sunday to put an immediate market down in the Golden Boot race.
Harry Kane, who has NEVER scored a goal in August, is 2/1.
And there is value to be had in Alexandre Lacazette.
He is 8/1 even after scoring on his debut against Leicester last week.
Sun Bets have a blinding special offer for top scorer.
If you bet £25 on any player to top the table at the end of the season, they’ll give a £5 free bet for every game he scores in until October.
The offer is valid until midnight August 27 and is open to ALL customers.
Lanzini, 24, has been impressive in his two Premier League seasons scoring 14 over both campaigns.
He may have to play second fiddle to Di Maria if Barcelona get their way.
The club have been tracking the Paris Saint-Germain forward throughout the summer and his place in the side is under threat especially as the French giants chase Kylian Mbappe.
