La Liga giants, Barcelona are said to be considering signing Nigerian sensational striker, Samuel Chukwueze from Villareal as a replacement for injured Ousmane Dembele.
Under the Spanish football laws, Barcelona is allowed to sign a replacement for Dembele who has been ruled out of action for the rest of the season due to injury.
The player must, however, be from within the Spanish league.
Football analysts in Spain have now urged Barca to sign the Nigerian international as he represents the ideal player who can hit the ground running.
Chukwueze is understood to have a €65 million buy out clause on his contract and Barcelona could pay close to that to have him.
The player had reportedly been a subject of interest from English premier league clubs Liverpool and Chelsea.
