Barcelona add Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez to shortlist

Barcelona have added Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez to their shortlist as a long-term replacement for Luis Suarez, report Diario AS.

The Uruguayan striker is said to have a release clause of €50m at Balaidos and lined-up against the Blaugrana and his fellow countryman in Saturday’s 2-0 loss at the Camp Nou.

The target-man ‘is on the list of possible candidates’ to replace Suarez, who turns 32 next month, and last month was also linked with replacing Diego Costa at Atletico Madrid.

Gomez has hit 24 La Liga goals in 48 starts since joining from Defensor Sporting in 2017.
