Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford ‘on Barcelona transfer shortlist’

Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane and Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford are both reportedly on Barcelona’s transfer shortlist as the Spanish giants prepare for life after Luis Suarez.
The Catalan giants are widely expected to move for a new striker either in January or at the end of the campaign as they look for a long-term replacement for Suarez, who will be 33 in the early stages of 2020.

According to Mundo Deportivo, both Kane and Rashford are on a four-man shortlist which also includes Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino and Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez.

The report claims that Barca are pessimistic when it comes to signing Firmino, though, and view Kane and Rashford as more attainable targets due to the problems at their respective clubs.

Both Tottenham and United have struggled for form in the early stages of the 2019-20 campaign, with Kane’s future in particular being called into question over the last few weeks.

The England captain has scored seven times in 10 outings for Mauricio Pochettino’s side this term, while Rashford, who has struggled to carry the goalscoring burden at Old Trafford, has three in 10 appearances.
