Barcelona are continuing their rebuild after losing Lionel Messi to Paris Saint-Germain, with reports claiming the Catalan club are monitoring Arsenal duo Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Sport says that both players are on the radar of Ronald Koeman after the Barca manager announced that he would like to sign a striker before the window closes.
The report says Arsenal have offered both forwards to Barcelona, with the Gunners keen on reducing their wage bill. The two stars currently earn a combined £420,000-a-week on their base salaries alone, while Lacazette has just one year remaining on his deal.
Whether the deal progresses hinges on the status of Martin Braithwaite, who the Blaugrana are keen to move on before giving the green light to advance talks for the Premier League stars.
However, the Denmark international may have made his case to stay at Camp Nou after he scored in Barcelona’s 4-2 victory over Real Sociedad on the opening day of the LaLiga season (stream a replay on ESPN+ in the U.S.)
