Barcelona legend believes that Barcelona must sign a couple of players for the frontline in order to compete for Champions League.

After the departure of

Setien

,

Koeman

arrived at

Barcelona

and it was obvious from the first day that

Luis Suarez

is no longer considered a player in his plans.

and they put everything in their effort to bring

Depay

, the Dutch forward.

However, they were not successful to bring Depay as the price tag was high. Ansu Fati is set to miss a few months for Barcelona due to injury and now there are only a few options for Koeman at the front. Rivaldo, a former Barcelona player believes that they must sign 2 or 3 forwards to be able to compete for Champions League.

The Blaugrana legend told Betfair: “I thought Barcelona should sign someone before Ansu Fati's injury, so now I think it even more.

“The club should try to sign one or two strikers if they want to fight for the Champions League.”

The Brazilian added: “

Koeman

should have more options in attack to manage a line-up which is sufficiently decisive and competitive in big games, in important ties.

“Ansu was playing well, he was gaining confidence and becoming more influential in the team, his absence is another headache for the coach.”
