Barcelona are ready to take a step for a Premier League striker in January, and despite financial problems, they could afford it.
Barcelona’s financial woes led Lionel Messi to leave the club this summer, which really highlighted how bad things are at Camp Nou.
However, there could be some light at the end of the tunnel for the Catalan side, even with almost three months remaining, with reports of a potential signing in January.
The club managed to sell Antoine Griezmann back to Atleti on the transfer deadline day in August and were expected to sign a striker to replace the striker.
Instead, they had to settle for signing Luuk de Jong on loan from Sevilla, a move which has been mocked by the football community, especially those who remember the Dutch striker’s time at Newcastle United.
If the funds are actually available, it would certainly make sense for the club to take another step forward, with a move for Olmo also on the agenda.
Sterling has only started two Premier League games for Pep Guardiola so far this season, also starting a Champions League game.
The England forward could consider his future at the Etihad Stadium if his chances of being in the starting XI do not improve by January.
