We’ve been here before, haven’t we? Barcelona being linked with one of Arsenal’s top players. We’ve seen Thierry Henry, Cesc Fabregas, Marc Overmars, Emmanuel Petit, Alex Song and Thomas Vermaelen trade North London for Catalonia over the years and now the La Liga champions are being urged to swoop for another Gunner.
It is currently being reported in Spain that Barca are seeking a replacement for Luis Suarez, with the 32-year-old Uruguayan forward not expected to figure into long term planning at the Camp Nou.
And former Barca striker Patrick Kluivert has identified an Arsenal player who could fill the void when the former Liverpool man departs the Spanish champions.
Speaking to Sport 360 the former Netherlands international recommended Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as a replacement for Suarez, along with Manchester United youngster Marcus Rashford.
“I like Marcus Rashford, a lot. It will be really difficult to get him over [to Barcelona].
But he is a good player. I don’t see a lot of players who can play in Barcelona. [Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang, perhaps he can play.”

We’ll be honest Patrick, and any Barcelona representatives who may be reading this on the off chance, we highly recommend Marcus Rashford. Can’t speak highly enough of him. Bang in form and only 21 years of age. You should definitely try and buy him to replace Suarez.
