Barcelona president Joan Laporta wants to make a senior striker signing this summer.
Mundo Deportivo says after Neymar's decision to commit to a new deal with PSG, Laporta is ready to look elsewhere for a new attacking signing. The newly-elected Barca president had hopes of bringing Neymar back to the Nou Camp this summer. But the Brazilian chose to commit to a new deal to 2025 with PSG on Saturday.
As such, Laporta is looking elsewhere for a big name attacking signing and high on his shortlist is Borussia Dortmund ace Erling Haaland.
Indeed, despite BVB's valuation, Laporta would be willing to negotiate a deal for the Norway international, having already met with his agent Mino Raiola and father Alf-Inge over the last month.
If Haaland proves out of reach, however, Laporta still has two alternatives.
