Barcelona interested in Raul de Tomas and Espanyol will put up fight

Barcelona are continuing to look for a striker who is liked by Ronald Koeman. Raul de Tomas is the latest name to appear although it looks negotiations with Espanyol will be long.

Raul de Tomas' Espanyol future looks bleak after the club were relegated to Segunda. His salary is, without doubt, one of the most highest in the second tier. Several La Liga teams are interested in his signing, but it seems difficult because of his buyout clause. 

Barcelona want a number 9 at all costs and, according to 'Deportes Cuatro', the Real Madrid academy player could be the solution to Ronald Koeman's request. Barca are short of men up front since Luis Suarez's move from Barca to Atletico Madrid. 

However, although both parties are happy about the move, this seems unlikely to be complicated. Espanyol want clubs to pay the 60 million euros stipulated in his buyout clause, an amount Barca cannot pay. 

What is clear is that Barcelona are still looking for a main striker up front as they have a tough season ahead. Because of the difficult situation facing Memphis Depay and especially Lautaro Martinez, the sporting director and his team also focussed on Willian Jose. They will not spend huge money on someone at the moment.
