When you look at Barcelona, you see a club that is in the making. They used to be the best club in the world once upon a time and till very recently, they were one of the favorites to win the La Liga every season. However, after the exit of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, and Neymar, the team has become rather blunt in the attacking end. The club has managed to bring in a few decent players to put the balls at the back of the net however, they are just not enough at the moment and what the club really needs is a traditional striker.
Barcelona currently has only one traditional or conventional striker and that is Martin Braithwaite. The Danish striker was one of the most bizarre buys of the club and he was never good enough to fit into the first team of the club. He was always meant to be a reserve player however, now he is the only striker remaining. Memphis Depay was brought into the club this season in order to fill in the number nine spot, however, he is not consistent enough, and with the lack of a Messi-type figure in the club, the number of goals that Barca scores have gone down significantly.
