When it confirmed that Luis Suárez would be four months of drop owing to the intervention in his meniscus, the FC Barcelona sondeó the signing of a forward in winter that finally finish descartando for being little sustainable economically. With the injury, also of long length, of Ousmane Dembélé,​ the arrival of a forward this month of February has turned into a basic need.

The rule of LaLiga Santander allows to inscribe to new footballers out of the period of signings in case that a player with index card cause low by a prolonged time, as in the case of Dembélé. This yes, the player that arrive has to be free agent or play in a Spanish club, taking into account also that it will not be able to play in the Champions League. There are four names on of the table.

Willian José

The forward of the Real Sociedad, to his 28 years, would arrive in the plenitud of his career, endorsed besides by a quique Setién that already had him in the UD The Palms and that it could take out his best performance. However, the club donostiarra does not have the intention to sell him -in fact, refused 15 millions of the Tottenham Hotspur in January- and would remit to the clause of rescission: 70 million euros that the Barça will not pay.

Lucas Pérez

Lucas Pérez is the fuselage insignia of the Sportive Alavés and is showing, in addition to his big talent, that understands to perfection the football of LaLiga. The problem is that the club vitoriano neither wants to give off of him and, to his 31 years, the 25 million euros of his clause of rescission (no 15, as they inform other means) would be too expensive for a footballer of his age.


By price, Ángel would be the most affordable option, since his clause of rescission with the Getafe is of 10 million euros. Without being indisputable headline, has achieved to annotate 9 goals in 19 parties this season. However, his 32 years of age would do unfeasible the payment of 10 'kilos', in addition to treating of a '9' pure that hardly would serve to cover the three places of attack as it pretends Setién.


Loren, of the Real Betis, is a player that Quique Setién also knows perfectly of when both coincided in Benito Villamarín. To his 26 years, would turn into a player of present and future for the club although, of course, the price would be his problem. His clause is of 60 millions and does not seem neither that the good relations between culés and béticos can recess this price.
