Despite making significant investments in the team for the last two years, FC Barcelona’s attack has been found lacking a number of times over the last season.

Only Robert Lewandowski’s performances have warranted optimism in the attacking capabilities of the squad, while most other attackers have not performed up to expectations.

Now a report from Fichajes holds that the club has identified Ferran Torres as the main culprit holding the club’s attack back, and has definitely not paid back the €55 million that the Catalans paid to Manchester City for his arrival. After having given him a number of chances, the club is now becoming increasingly pessimistic about his recovery of form and is considering cutting their losses with the young Spaniard.

Another inspiration behind selling Torres is the financial condition of the club, and Barcelona aspire to improve their economic condition by selling an asset that has not yet lost its value entirely. However, replacing the winger is another operation the club would have to undertake after Torres’ departure, and the club has already began considering options that can replace him next season.

One of the more prominent names being considered now is that of Wilfried Zaha, who currently plies his trade with Crystal Palace in the Premier League, but whose contract runs out this summer. Thus, the fact that he will be able to come to Catalonia as a free agent makes him an alluring option for Barcelona if they are able to move Ferran Torres on from the club.
