Between Fati, Griezmann and Martin Braithwaite; who will be Barcelona no.9 next season when Suarez leaves.

Between Fati, Griezmann and Martin Braithwaite; who will be Barcelona no.9 next season when Suarez leaves.

Barcelona's No.9 shirt appears to be vacant for the 2020-2021 campaign as Luis Suarez is reportedly edging closer Juventus.

Tribuna.com take a look at the potential candidates who may don his iconic jersey next season.

Antoine Griezmann

Ronald Koeman has already made it clear the Frenchman won't be used as a winger next season.
Griezmann could be moved up to Suarez's position and inherit his shirt number as well even though he would seemingly prefer to reclaim the No.7 kit.
Ansu Fati

Koeman reportedly thinks of using the wonderkid as a new centre-forward at Barca which would make him a perfect heir to Suarez.
Fati is now ready to receive his first shirt number in the senior squad after making history for Spain.
Memphis Depay

The Dutch attacker is believed to be Koeman's priority target to strengthen the attack and Lyon are ready to let him leave.
Depay is renowned for his versatility in the attack even though he had been wearing the No.9 jersey just once in his career - during the 2016-2017 season at Lyon.
Lautaro Martinez

The Argentinian is a pure centre-forward and has long been touted as Suarez's potential heir at Barca.
Just like Depay, Lautaro had owned the No.9 shirt just once, at the Argentina U20 side.
Wildcard: Martin Braithwaite

The 29-year-old would be the only natural centre-forward at Barca if Suarez really leaves.
Braithwaite has recently become Denmark's brand new No.9 so he would wear the same number for both club and country. Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
