It has been confirmed by the president of Barcelona, Josep Maria Bartomeu that Luis Enrique is interested and attempting to sign another attacking powerhouse to the team and this new player might be signed within the upcoming few weeks when the winter transfer window opens.
Barcelona was fined by FIFA and not allowed to make any transfers for an entire year due to inconsistencies that were found in some of their previous signings but this sanction will be reaching it’s end in January of 2016 and the Spanish club will be able to add new players.
Despite the FIFA ban that was issued to Barcelona, they still managed to secure the services of ArdaTuran and Aleis Vidal but none of them have been actually able to play in any competitive game for the team of Luis Enrique, they will be able to finally get some playing time starting from January.
Even with the addition of these players, Luis Enrique is still interested in signing a few more performers that can improve his squad even further; this was recently announced by Barcelona’s Josep Maria Bartomeu.
The president of the Spanish club voiced the plans of Luis Enrique as he said: “The coach and the technical staff want a striker. If he comes it will be a loan deal with a right to buy. We’ll also have ArdaTuran and Vidal coming in, who are two great players.”
It comes as a surprise to know that Luis Enrique and the rest of the technical staff are interested to sign yet another offensive player, taking into consideration that Barcelona 36 goals in 15 matches which is the 2nd highest amount of the entire La Liga followed behind only by Real Madrid.
It’s likely that this new attacker will be used as a backup option more than anything else as the offensive duties of Barcelona are already being carried on by Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.
