As the year is coming to an end, the preparations and plannings for the winter transfer window are on for all clubs across Europe. The winter transfer window will open in January and it's no secret that clubs will want to strengthen their squad and increase the depth of the squad with some new signings.
FC Barcelona board is busy planning their moves in the market as they look to cement their place at the top of La Liga. They are three points ahead of Atletico Madrid in the league and finished at the top of their group in the UEFA Champions League yet Barcelona are immensely concerned about their squad depth.
Starlets like Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Sergio Busquets, Arthuro Vidal and Rakitic are not getting any younger. Moreover, with Philippe Coutinho having trouble filling into the shoes of legendary Andres Iniesta, Barcelona will look to secure some targets to increase the depth of their squad.
Without further ado, let us look at four players who will fit well with Barcelona's style of play and have a major impact on the pitch.
#1 Krzysztof Piątek
Possibly, the hottest prospect across all Europe at the moment, the young sharpshooter is already the leading goalscorer in the Seria A with 13 goals. The 23-year-old has scored more than the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Mauro Icardi and Ciro Immobile in the Italian league so far.
The young marksman has proven decisive for Genoa since his arrival at Italy. His exploits have helped Genoa avoid the relegation zone so far and prosper in the Coppa Italia. His brilliance in front of goal with such a low support system is extremely rare and it's no secret that top clubs of Europe are keeping their eye on him.
Barcelona are desperately looking for a goalscorer since Luis Suarez is not getting any younger and gradually losing his pace which is very normal. Suarez is still a fox in the box but he is also playing almost every game. Sooner or later, Barcelona will need the help of reinforcements.
On the other hand, Paco Alcacer has been on excellent form on loan at Dortmund so far, which leaves Barcelona with a space for a striker in the squad. It is crystal clear that going for a goal scoring talent like Piatek would reap benefits in the coming seasons.
