|Lacazette hints at possible Barça move?|
FC Barcelona are currently in the market for a forward that will take up the role as backup for Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar. So many names have been linked with a move to the Catalan club and it now seems like it will never end.
Practically, FC Barcelona are STRONGLY interested in signing Four strikers to fill that fourth striker role with Atletico Madrid forward Luciano Vietto their favourite option, and recently, SPORT reported that Fenerbahce striker Robin Van Persie has offered to take up that role.
The club or any of its member are yet to officially mention a name and everything right now is a hint. The latest is Alexander Lacazette. The 25-year old Frenchman has put the entire Barça faithfuls on a meltdown after he followed the club’s official account on twitter with speculations suggesting it is a sign of a possible transfer to the club.
This speculation comes as no surprise as Barça are signing players mysteriously this summer. First, Lucas Digne was announced out of nowhere with a similar issue which saw him follow FC Barcelona on twitter and then unfollowing before his official announcement.
Barça announced the signing of Andre Gomes despite no major transfer saga. The player was very close to joining Real Madrid but ended up signing for Barça at the last minute. Barça now sign players with little or no sign and that is the reason the fans are insisting Lacazette might just come.

There should be no major meltdown about the issue however as there have been cases where players follow other clubs on social media. Lionel Messi once followed Chelsea, a situation that led to numerous speculations surrounding his future.
Lacazette is a very good striker and banged in 21 league goals for Olympique Lyon in 34 games in the French Ligue 1 last season. Reports suggest the star has told the Lyon board that he wants to leave this summer.
Barça fans prefer Vietto but is Lacazette a possibility?? We’ll have to wait for something official. Lyon will do all they can to try and keep their man who is unlikely to leave for anything less than €40 million.
