To so only five days of the closing of the wintry window, the offices of the FC Barcelona find to tope in the research of a new '9' that satisfy the wishes of Xavi Hernández. The team needs to reinforce in the forward, and the lack of goal is an urgency that has to be attended at all costs. However, with the signing of Álvaro Morata still in the 'limbo' thanks to the negotiation between the Juventus and the Fiorentina by Dusan Vlahovic, a new alternative has taken strength, although the Barça is not the only interested.

It treats of Lucas Boyé, the forward of the Elche, the one who has had a first-half of season with good numbers. Already they are seven the goals that adds in 17 parties contested, and has been an important piece for the diagram of game of Fran Escribá. Nevertheless, the ones of Manuel Martínez Valero find , by the moment, to five points of the places of descent, a worrisome situation for an attacker that can be important in a club of different characteristics.

It is thus that the Barça would have in 'looks it' to the Argentinian in case that the 'operation Morata' fail. In spite of this, there is several limitantes that could complicate his landing to the Camp Nou. The first of them would be his traspaso, since it has a clause of rescission of 25 million euros, a figure that at present the club can not assume. Besides, the Athletic of Madrid​ also has posited as 'beau'. The ones of the 'Cholo' Simeone look for an attacker sudamericano that it can replace to Luis Suárez, the one who has foot and half out of Wanda.

The Catalans only would have in his plans the incorporation of the born in Saint Gregorio if the Elche is had to yield him with an option of included purchase, something similar to what would be the transactions by Nicolás Tagliafico and the same Morata. A factor of could incidir in a possible negotiation of positive form would be the descent of the group ilicitano, since the price of Boyé would reduce until the 10 millions, an accessible figure in case that still they want him when finalising the season.

A '9' with urgency

The offensive capacity of the Barça has gone in decadence from the exit of Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez and Antoine Griezmann, by what the needs every time are more urgent inside the Sportive City Joan Gamper. Although the main aim of the culés is Erling Haaland, have to have a 'plan of contingency' in case all fails. The current forwards of the team do not offer forcefulness, by what is necessary a spare of players.
