“Signing a striker? We can’t say names about signings. Names like Loren’s have come out but for now, we have to wait to see how Ousmane Dembele looks. If there is a good chance, we’ll see if we do it. If Quique asks for a player, it is normal and we will see.”
Ousmane Dembele could face up to five months
The Cules in the market of another striker, admits director Guillermo Amor. But the League giants are reluctant to reveal the identity of possible goals. Even though the winter window has closed, the opportunity to add remains open for those at Camp Nou. Emergency lending transactions may still be completed, although agreements should be reached between domestic rivals. That is, it makes Barcelona take a closer look at the house for a short-term correction, while Blaugrana was for some time connected with Rodrigo, the star of Valencia. They need to get another body in because Luis Suárez has faded into the foreseeable future. So Ousmane Dembele could face up to five months due to injury.
We can’t name candidates
Amor admits that options are being studied, but keeps his cards close to his chest. He told reporters amid the victory over Real Betis 3-2 when he started an ongoing search for a new goal-getter: “We can’t give names.” Other players have left, and we must wait and see what Dembele’s situation is before then we decide. “If there is a good opportunity to sign someone, then we will see what we can do.” The Cules found inspiration because of their astounding division against Betis. With Frankie de Jong, Sergio Busquets, and Clement Langlet getting their goals.
We are a strong team
Lionel Messi helped all these efforts, and Amor was pleased to see a battling performance put in a collective following recent struggles for consistency. He added: “We repeated the performance from Bilbao. We stood up and showed that we are the winning team.” We are a strong team that wants to fight for everything. We showed a face and created a lot of chances. “I think that we are also doing well on the defensive.” In a normal situation, Pique would have started. Today Langlet and Samuel Umtiti began to and did well. “The central defenders played well.” While Barca returned to the victorious paths against Betis, they remain in second place in the League table behind Clasico rivals in “Real” and are still looking for a spark under the new boss Quique Setien.
