Aubameyang next? Setien admits Barcelona seeking striker signing

Barcelona boss Quique Setien admits they're in the market for a striker this month.

Setien has confirmed that the club are interested in signing a striker this month following the long-term injury to Luis Suarez.

With the 32-year-old expected to be out until at least May, Barca are expected to add a forward before the transfer window closes and have reportedly identified Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as their preferred target, says the Mirror.

"We are considering that issue but we still have to mature things a little more, it is not an issue that worries me too much," Setien said on Tuesday.

"I am worried about tomorrow's game and that of Valencia, this is an issue that we will deal with the sports management in-depth and we will see what is most convenient."
