Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland is Barcelona’s main target, writes As.
The forward has played 19 games in the Bundesliga this season, scoring 19 goals and making 4 assists.
Meanwhile, the Catalan club want to sign a striker in the summer transfer window.
And Barcelona president Joan Laporta is confident that a deal for Haaland is feasible despite the financial difficulties the club are experiencing.
The manager wants to take advantage of his close relationship with agent Mino Raiola, who represents the Norwegian.
Laporta is convinced that the best remedy for the Barcelona crisis would be to create a winning team.
He sees the purchase of Haaland as a means to this end.
Barcelona are planning to issue bonds in the near future, which will reduce the club’s debt (about €1.2 billion) in a short period of time.
The Catalans also have to pay off short-term debts, which are estimated at €200m.
