Robert Fernández talked about the news of the Blaugrana transfer window in the press conference of André Gomes' presentation. The technical secretary had to talk about one of the big issues of the current debate: the fourth forward. After the Vietto fever, who will finally sign for Sevilla, and the very probable signing of Gameiro for Atlético Madrid, Barça are still working to find the ideal man.

"The striker will arrive when the time comes", Robert said. The man explained that two profiles of player that could potentially occupy the position are being studied: "We have two directions, the one of the experienced striker and the young one. We have to analyse well what suits us." He also had a message for the players that renounced to signing for Barça: "I would sign without a doubt, and I think it is a mistake not to do so. Many people are wrong. There are opportunities that will come, you just have to be ready to face them."

Currently, according to TV3, there are 4 names the technical secretary is looking into: Lucas Pérez, Carlos Bacca, Mario Gómez and Van Persie. It is yet to see how the negotiations evolve in the coming days of the summer transfer window.
