Meanwhile, FC Barcelona are desperate to add another striker to their squad after Luis Suarez picked up an injury that is expected to keep him sidelined for four months. The Guardian and Sport have claimed that names such as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Timo Werner are high on the Spanish club's wish list, but it remains to be seen whether or not they can convince their current clubs to sell in mid-season.

According to the Daily Mail, the Serie A side has offered £11 million (R208 million) for the player, who is out of contract in June, while Spurs are believed to be holding out for £17 million (R321 million).
