REVEALED: The 6 strikers Barcelona discussing for emergency signing

Barcelona have a six-man shortlist of striker transfer targets as they seek an emergency signing.

Barca are set to seek permission to sign a replacement striker for Ousmane Dembele, who is out for the season due to a serious hamstring injury.

La Vanguardia says Alaves striker Lucas Perez, a former Barca player, is on their shortlist, along with Getafe veteran Angel Gonzalez. Valencia pair Rodrigo Moreno and Kevin Gameiro are being considered, as is Real Sociedad's Willian Jose.

Real Betis centre-forward Loren Moron is another being discussed inside La Masia.

Further motivating Barca's directors to take this route is news this week that Barca B attacker Hiroki Abe has suffered a similar hamstring injury to Dembele.
