Barcelona target summer move for Premier League trio

Barcelona are understandably keen on adding a new striker this summer with Vitor Roque and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on their hit list.

However, the Catalan giants are also looking to invest in a top-class winger given the issues the have faced with their current crop of players.

They have sorely missed the services of Ousmane Dembele during his injury, while Ansu Fati and Ferran Torres have failed to live up to expectations.

Xavi has deployed Gavi as a left-winger, although the 18-year-old tends to drop into the midfield.

However, the Blaugrana manager is aware that he can’t rely on Gavi as an attacking option and needs a permanent solution for the left flank.

According to Catalunya Radio, Barca have identified Liverpool duo Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah alongside Tottenham Hotspurs’s Heung-min Son as potential targets and are looking to persuade one of them to Camp Nou in the summer.

Salah has ingrained his status as a Reds legend and one of the best players in Europe with his incredible consistency over the years.

The Egyptian talisman was linked with a move to Barca and Real Madrid before he penned a contract extension at Anfield last year.

His attacking partner Diaz was also on Barca’s wishlist, but he joined the Merseysiders at the start of the last year.

The Colombian winger’s progress has hit a standstill this season with a knee injury, but his talent is undeniable, and the Reds are eagerly waiting for his return.

It also looks highly doubtful that the Reds would sell Diaz, who they consider one of the important prospects for the future and also integral in their fight to finish inside the Champions League places this season.

Son has suffered a significant decline in performance for Tottenham this season, looking nowhere near the form that helped him win the Premier League Golden Boot last season.

The South Korean international has been one of the prolific forwards in the Premier League over the years, but the turmoil at Spurs following Antonio Conte’s dismissal could make him reconsider his future.

However, he is still a far-fetched target for Barca, with his contract running until 2025 and a considerable fee required for his signing.
