Barcelona have reportedly identified Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus as their ideal replacement for Luis Suarez.
Despite contributing 21 goals last season, Suarez has been informed by newly-appointed boss Ronald Koeman that he can leave Camp Nou this summer.
That development has come at a time when Lionel Messi is pushing to leave the Catalan giants, potentially for Man City.
However, while it has previously been claimed that the Premier League outfit are not prepared to use Jesus in part-exchange, reports in Spain suggest that Barcelona have their eyes on the Brazil international.
Although not deemed as an alternative to Messi, officials at the La Liga outfit may insist on the 23-year-old when holding discussions regarding Messi with their City counterparts.
Jesus, who has often played second fiddle to Sergio Aguero, has three years remaining on his contract at City.
