With FC Barcelona in an average run so far in LaLiga this season, it is evident that the Blaugrana need a forward who can double or triple the lead once Lionel Messi puts the ball in the back of the net. Pretty much all of their games these days are opened by goals coming from Lionel Messi.
No doubt Luis Suarez is a team player with all the dummy play assists for Leo, but the striker also lacks the goals FC Barcelona needs. It might be his age causing the lack of form, not allowing the striker to finish chances.
The striker could soon be put on the bench as he is not able to contribute a lot to the team at the moment. Luis Suarez should now try to bring back the excellent run he had during his Liverpool days, or even the 2014-15 season.
However, these are a few replacements who would benefit the team.
#1 Lautaro Martinez
When it comes to forwards, Inter Milan always has options. They have it all, and the 21-year old magician Lautaro Martinez is tall, young and will compliment FC Barcelona with his finishing skills very well.
His height would compliment all the crosses coming in from Roberto or Jordi Alba. He is one of the most promising players around, and being an Argentine, Cules would hope he could come to Barcelona due to his slight links with Lionel Messi.
In his career, he has scored 27 goals in 62 appearances and has bagged 6 assists. The player will bring a lot to the Spanish side and increase the chances of Barcelona getting a treble, or even a sextuple.

#2 Kylian Mbappe
It is no wonder every team in the world would want this magician. He is just absolutely fantastic, and remains the deadliest finisher in recent times. It remains a dream for Barcelona as the 19-year old sees Cristiano Ronaldo as his idol, so it looks unlikely he would agree to sign a contract with FC Barcelona if approached.
He seems delighted with his current run with Neymar in Paris Saint-Germain, so he will not leave PSG for any other club for the time being.
Kylian Mbappe will compliment Barcelona on all round with the blistering pace he possesses, and of course, his neat finishing.
Stats are not necessary to tell who this wonder kid is.
#3 Mauro Icardi
As aforementioned, Inter Milan has the deadliest strike force in recent times. Mauro Icardi will give advantage to Barcelona in all directions, as he can play in almost all the roles assigned in the final third positions.
He will drift wide when necessary, and also score with a neat finish. Barcelona needs this 26-year old who gets injured rarely, and fitness is never an issue for this player. With Suarez being blank for a few games, Icardi could light up the competition and be a starter in FC Barcelona.
It is a dream move because Mauro Icardi might never leave Inter Milan, and perhaps also possibly become the Francesco Totti of Inter Milan, loyalty is the word.
In 8 appearances this season, Icardi has scored 5 goals and assisted twice already, proving why he is another dream signing for the Blaugrana side.
