Barcelona's number one target should be Harry Kane, the Tottenham captain and goal-machine.

Kane has creativity, powerful shots, and can produce consistent performances, all of which are required at a club like Barcelona.

With Messi, Dembele and Coutinho to provide him the ball, Kane can become a Camp Nou favorite in no time, if he decides to move from his boyhood club.

Icardi

Messi's compatriot Mauro Icardi can also fit in well

Barcelona can also consider Mauro Icardi, the captain of Inter Milan as a viable replacement for Suarez.

Considering how good the defense of Italian teams is, Mauro's tally of 29 goals in 34 appearances, last season, is a remarkable feat.

He is unselfish, can pass the ball into the right territory and is prolific.

All of which you need to be successful at Barca.
