Barcelona will be hoping to sign Benfica striker Darwin Nunez as the perfect replacement for Luis Suarez who left club, MySportDab reports.
The move might see Barca spend big once again as the youngster won’t be sold for cheap by his club.
Luis Suarez was frozen out of the squad by Ronald Koeman who told him he won’t be a part of his team.
Eventually, he left for Atletico Madrid and since then Barcelona have struggled with scoring goals in games.
Benfica likely to demand huge fee for their most prized asset who has drawn interests from the laliga giant.
Barcelona has identified Benfica forward Darwin Nunez as a long-term replacement for Luis Suarez, according to ESPN.
The 21-year-old Uruguay international joined Benfica this summer from Almeria and he has been on top form.
The young striker scored his first goal in a Europa League which was a hat-trick against Lech Poznan.
Benfica manager Jorge Jesus said he expects Nunez to one day be sold for more than the €126m (£122m/$142m).
Which was the amount Atletico Madrid paid to sign Joao Felix some seasons ago and he has been fantastic.
The move looks likely to happen but it all depends on Barcelona if they will be splashing the cash or not.
