Barcelona’s sports management has intensified the monitoring of Alexander Isak because they are aware that one of the priorities of the future club president will be the hiring of a center forward, several sources told ESPN.

The current board has no powers to sign, but the current sports management led by Ramón Planes has continued to scour the market in recent months to offer the new president different reports on the positions to be strengthened and on some players who find it interesting to do so.

Isak scored 16 goals in his first year with the Basque team (9 in LaLiga and 7 in the Copa del Rey) and this season he is preparing to improve that record after scoring 12 goals in 20 La Liga games.
