According to ESPN, with Barcelona on the hunt for a new forward this summer, a priority plan that appears to be shared by all three presidential candidates, the club has already offered Sergio Agüero.
Unsurprisingly, ESPN reports that the cash-strapped club is looking at players who are out of contract this summer, and Aguero is one of the top picks to fit this tag.
The Blaugrana are claimed to have already been offered the signature of the 32-year-old in a free transfer, presumably by the forward’s representatives or intermediaries as opposed to Manchester City.
Aguero has seen less action in the past two and a half seasons due to injury problems, the superstar has been limited to nine appearances in all competitions this period, only three of which as a starter.
ESPN claims the club’s other forward options are Sociedad ace Alexander Isak, Lyon Memphis Day star (free), Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martínez and Benfica talent Darwin Nunez.

the Sun He previously reported that Agüero has already been in contact with the Catalan team and with their rivals, Atlético de Madrid, for a possible move.
Agüero has established himself as one of the City’s best players since arriving from Atlético in the summer of 2011, with whom he starred in La Liga for five years.
Being a close friend of Lionel Messi due to his time with Argentina’s national team, the world-class forward may well be a recruit who could help convince the all-time greats to stay, too.
Aguero’s record is remarkable, he is the fourth top scorer in Premier League history with 180 to his name, which also makes him the most prolific foreign star in the English top flight.
It’s a shame that in what is shaping up to be possibly the Argentine’s last season in England that injuries have prevented the ace from reaching the top three, he’s just seven off Andy Cole’s PL count.
