Two Arsenal stars feature prominently on the striker shortlist at Spanish champions Barcelona according to reports emanating from Spain.

Barcelona want to sign a new striker this summer as a long-term replacement for the aging Luis Suarez.

Uruguayan international Luis Suarez has been the first choice striker at Barcelona since joining the Catalan giants from Liverpool in a £75m deal shortly after the 2014 FIFA World Cup tournament in Brazil but the player has struggled at times this season.

Barcelona want to sign a new striker in his place for the long haul.

According to Spanish media platform Mundo Deportivo, two Arsenal strikers namely Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are on a three-man striker shortlist.

It was also revealed that Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford is also on the Barcelona radar.

French international striker Lacazette has been in very good form for Arsenal this season and it was not surprising when he won the Player of the Season Award at the club.

He has scored 18 goals in all competitions for Arsenal this season.

Gabonese international Aubameyang has also been in form for the Gunners with 31 goals in all competitions including 22 Premier League goals thus making him the joint league topscorer alongside the Liverpool duo of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
