Luis Enrique's wish to sign a forward is close to be true
Luis Enrique said it: he wants some reinforcements on the attacking line. And by reinforcement he means Nolito. Indeed, it seems like Barça's manager is only interested in former blaugrana and currently Celta Vigo player, although rumours have linked the club with Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Here is a review of the current transfer rumours at Barcelona.
Nolito - 29 years old - Celta Vigo
He is the main target of Luis Enrique. Barça's manager said it again and again, he wants Celta Vigo's forward to come back to Catalonia and finally play at Camp Nou in the first team. It is said that the transfer is about to come to a conclusion, as Mundo Deportuvo announced it could be done within a matter of days, for a loan-out deal with a buyout clause of 20 million euros, despite Celta's will to make Barça pay now. The only other problem is the great interest of Arsenal, that could snatch the player at the very last minute. But given Nolito's desire to come back to Barcelona and shine there, Barça's option seems in pole position.
Leroy Sané - 20 years old - Schalke 04
The young German winger just celebrated his 20th birthday on the 11th of January. A transfer to Barça could be the perfect gift for him, as it is said that he will sign with the blaugrana club to arrive next summer. According to French magazine France Football, Barcelona decided to pay the 37 million euros buyout clause Schalke 04 put on Sané to get him for next season. His contract with the German club ends in 2019. But his entourage is said to have agreed to a 6-year contract with Barça.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - 26 years old - Borussia Dortmund
Last but not least, one of the craziest rumours that have been travelling around Europe was Aubameyang potential arrival at Barça. The player clearly stated in German newspaper Bild that he would not in any way leave Dormtund in the months to come. "I am here and nowhere else - not at Arsenal, not at Barcelona, not on the moon - you can see that", said with a lot of humour the recent winner of African Player of the Year Award.
