Barcelona consider Salah and Lewandowski as Haaland alternatives

Barcelona have big dreams for the summer transfer window despite the financial limitations that the club are facing, and are continuing to work on a way to sign Erling Haaland. That failing, they want either Mohamed Salah or Robert Lewandowski.

It's looking increasingly unlikely that the Norwegian forward will land at the Camp Nou though, despite the Catalans' interest remaining, largely due to the financial demands of the player and his representatives. As a result, Barcelona are looking elsewhere while continuing to hope for the unlikely regarding the Borussia Dortmund forward.

Lewandowski and Salah are two players they're interested in, as both would offer instant solutions to their need for a No.9 beyond this season.

The Polish forward's record speaks for itself, and there is a belief that he can continue to play at the highest level for another few years despite being 33 years old. His contract at Bayern Munich runs until 2023, and the club are yet to offer a renewal.

Salah is facing a similar situation, with his contract also expiring in 2023. Liverpool, however, have put offers to the Egyptian but no agreement has been reached. He is also four years Lewandowski's junior, making him a more favourable option at the Camp Nou.

For now, though, Haaland remains the priority, but the Blaugrana have plans B and C ready to pursue should they fail to attract the Norwegian.
