Barcelona coach Setien: Clearly we need to sign a striker

Barcelona coach Quique Setien admits they need to sign a striker to cover the injuries to Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele.

The likes of Willian Jose, Loren Moron and Lucas Perez have all been linked with Barcelona, but first they must receive permission from the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) to sign a replacement for the Frenchman.

"If the arrival of a No.9 is possible, he should be as versatile as possible, but it is not easy," Setien acknowledged.

"The market is as it is and it's true that we still have to be authorised [to sign a replacement for Dembele by the RFEF].

"We have a few names, but then it depends on many things.

"It's obvious that we need someone to come in who will help us."

One of those rumoured with Barcelona, Loren, could face the Blaugrana for Real Betis at the Estadio Benito Villamarin on Sunday night.

"Loren is an interesting footballer, we know him well," Setien stated.

"I think he's a very good footballer with many qualities."
