Barcelona are reportedly monitoring Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

As reported by Sport, Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman has admitted that he would like to bring in a new striker.

However, the Catalan club would only be able to fulfil that objective if they are able to sell Martin Braithwaite for a significant fee.

Due to their financial struggles Barcelona wouldn't be able to afford a fee for either Aubameyang or Lacazette so any deal would have to involve a player exchange.

Barcelona have previously expressed an interest in both players and according to the report they would both be open to the prospect of joining the club.

Following Lionel Messi's departure to Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona are determined to bolster their attacking options. They can already call upon Antoine Griezmann, while wingers Memphis Depay, Ansu Fati and Ousmane Dembele are also capable of making a major impact.

However, Sergio Aguero, who joined the club this summer, is set be out for around ten weeks after injuring a tendon in his right calf.

Aubameyang and Lacazette were both missed Arsenal's defeat to Brentford on Friday with illness cited as the reason for their absence.

Last season was a challenging one for Aubameyang, whose performances were often well below his usual standards.

The Gabon international signed a new contract with Arsenal last year that runs until the summer of 2023.

Lacazette, meanwhile, has just one year remaining on his current deal.
