Barcelona are looking to sign La Liga striker with a €25m release clause


Barcelona have struggled to attract strikers for years. Every striker signed since Luis Suarez in 2014 has failed to make a proper impact with names such as Kevin-Prince Boateng, Martin Braithwaite and Luuk de Jong easily coming to mind.

According to a report by SPORT, Barca have their eyes on Lucas Boye from Elche. The Argentine has a €25m release clause but this could be reduced to €10m if Los Franjiverdes are relegated from La Liga.

Boye is a striker, and throughout his career in Spain he has 14 goals and four assists in 64 games. In the current campaign, he has seven goals and two assists in 17 games, matching his contributions from last season in half of the games.

Barcelona are interested in him as a low-cost alternative to Alvaro Morata. His experience as a La Liga player made him the ideal option for the Catalans. The fact that he’s found his feet now, even scoring against Real Madrid at the weekend, makes him an even better prospect.

As for Morata, he will almost certainly stay at Juventus due to the injuries suffered by several of his teammates.

Transfer insider Fabrizio Romano has claimed today that Dusan Vlahovic’s possible move to Torino will pave the way for Barcelona to get their hands on Morata. With five days remaining in the transfer window, however, there is little chance of both pending transactions.

The winter transfer window ends in a few weeks. Barcelona will work tirelessly to get their hands on at least one of them sooner or later.
