Barcelona reportedly consider making a bid for Ajax star Dusan Tadic after their attempts to sign Valencia’s Rodrigo Moreno came a cropper
The Catalans are desperate to land a proven forward after being informed Luis Suarez will spend the next four months on the sidelines with a knee injury.
With all of their previous efforts to hire Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Leipzig’s Timo Werner comfortably rejected, the reigning La Liga champions switched their attention towards Rodrigo.
Unfortunately for the Blaugrana, negotiations with Valencia broke down, which has forced them to take other options into consideration.
As reported by the Daily Mail, Ajax’s Dusan Tadic has emerged as Barcelona’s latest target for the attack.

Tadic rocketed to fame in 2018/19 when he scored 38 and assisted 24, helping Ajax win the Eredivisie title and reach the Champions League semi-finals.
A man, who almost single-handedly tore apart Real Madrid’s defense in the Champions League last season, certainly possesses the quality the Camp Nou outfit require.
The 31-year-old Serb has already racked up 12 goals and 21 assists this term for the Lancers, maintaining an impressive form the last campaign.
The one thing Barcelona can rely on here is their good relationship with Ajax, as the two clubs completed a major deal last summer that saw Frenkie de Jong swap the Netherlands for Spain.
