Luis Suarez has admitted ‘it would not be strange’ for Barcelona to be looking to sign another striker as they look for a long-term replacement for the Uruguayan.
Suarez has been the club’s main centre forward since signing from Liverpool in the summer of 2014, scoring 185 goals in 260 appearances.
But now, at 32, Suarez is entering the latter stages of his career and Barcelona are looking at potential replacements for him.

Kylian Mbappe and Lautaro Martinez have both been linked with moves to the Nou Camp and Suarez admits they are right to be thinking about strengthening the squad.
‘The demands at Barcelona are immense,’ Suarez told Ovacion. ‘Every three days you have to have a test, there is no rest, and you are not forgiven if you have even just one bad game.
‘It is not easy to play at a club like Barcelona, to adapt and win your place. I have to respect that I have spent five years at the club dealing with this pressure and always trying to respond in the right manner.
‘If the club are looking for, or wish to bring in another number nine, it would not be strange, it is the reality of football.
‘A time will arrive when my age will not allow me to play at the level Barcelona require, but while I can, and while I have the strength to compete, I will.’
