The FC Barcelona is combing the market right now to look for a '9' that it can substitute to Luis Suárez. The charrúa will be of drop after operating until the month of May, by what will lose practically what subtracts of season. Quique Setién only has four forwards without him and any of them is a pure tip. With Leo Messi, Antoine Griezmann, Ansu Fati and Carles Pérez could not sufficing to fulfil with the aims and the idea is to bring another attacker more.

The Barcelona seems that have on the table two names that already would have descartado by the same reason. It treats of Pedro Rodríguez and of Dani Elm, that could contribute a lot of things in the Barça, but that do not fulfil with the profile of goleador that is looking for the club. The barcelonistas want to a leading centre that can substitute directly to Suárez and neither the Catalan neither the Canarian can fulfil this function.

The one of Chelsea finishes agreement in June and could arrive already by very little money. The player has offered , as it signals Sportive World, but the Barcelona does not want to risk hiring a so distinct profile to what really looks for. The Tenerifean has goal, as it has showed during all his career, is very polyvalent and knows the house, but can not split from the centre, that is what looks for right now.

On the other hand, Elm is a footballer that likes and a lot in the entity culé. The Barça has him aimed in red in his list for the summer, but does not have thought to go to by him right now. It seems that the club and the surroundings of the player spoke to finals of 2019 to remain to beginnings of this 2020, but this meeting has not produced . The injury of Suárez has changed the plans of the Barcelona, that now only is centred in the research of a '9' pure.

Elm wants to go out already and the Barça could lose him

The one of the Dinamo of Zagreb has multiple offers and wants to leave Croatia already to be able to be in the Eurocopa. The Milan seems that it carries advantage, since it is the club that more money puts by him on of the table, but also wants him the Tottenham, that offers less, but seduces more to the footballer. The Dinamo wants to do box with him and expects to sell him to the best bidder, although the opinion of the ex canterano barcelonista also could be decisive.

The Barça risks to lose him in this month of January if it does not go to by him, but the Barcelona know that now the needs are others. Elm has arrival, speed and quality, but is more mediapunta that leading. It can manage in the extreme with ease, but no like reference, that is what want the culés. The Barcelona needs a goleador to compete by the Champions League and the one of Terrassa is not this footballer.
