Barcelona identify two forwards to replace Sergio Aguero at Camp Nou

Barcelona has identified two transfer targets to temporarily replace striker, Sergio Aguero, who is currently sidelined.

Aguero will miss at least the next three months after undergoing cardiological tests last week.

The Argentine international joined Barcelona on a free transfer in the summer from Manchester City.

Aguero was making just his sixth appearance for the Catalan club when he began experiencing chest pains during last weekend’s La Liga clash against Alaves.

The 33-year-old was taken to hospital, where he underwent a series of cardiological tests to determine the problem.

Earlier this week, Barcelona confirmed in an official statement that Aguero would be unavailable for at least three months while the attacker received further treatment.

According to AS, Barcelona is now eyeing RB Leipzig forward, Dani Olmo, who is the number one target of the club’s chiefs Mateu Alemany and Ramon Planes to provide cover for Aguero.

The second player Barcelona are also said to be targeting is Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling, who has started only one of Manchester City’s last five games in all competitions
