BARCELONA could turn to Harry Kane in their hunt for a new striker if Erling Haaland does not sign, according to reports in Spain.
Borussia Dortmund star Haaland has caught the eye of several clubs as his representatives hold talks with prospective bidders.
Agent Mino Raiola and father Alf-Inge Haaland have flown in for talks with both Real Madrid and Barcelona.
But Haaland's club will seek a fee topping £150million if they are to sell him this summer, with the 20-year-old's £68m release clause activating next year.
That could turn Barcelona to a Plan B, according to Spanish outlet Sport, who name Kane and Lautaro Martinez as such options.
SunSport revealed last week that Tottenham will refuse to sell their star striker to a Premier League rival.
A move abroad is considered slightly more palatable, although the fee of £175m would have to be negotiated down.
These latest reports suggest that Barcelona will have to be inventive with player-plus-cash deals if they are to sign a star name this summer.
Targets such as Georginio Wijnaldum, Memphis Depay, Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia will all soon be available as free agents.
In contrast, Inter Milan star Martinez, like Kane, could command a nine-figure fee.
Previously thought to be a major target for the LaLiga giants, the Argentine is set to sign a new contract that would bolster his existing £98 buyout fee.
Martinez, 23, is the lowest-scoring of the three stars on Barcelona's radar, although Inter are looking good to lift the Serie A title.
His 16-goal tally sits behind Kane (29) and Haaland (33).

The manager stated recently that speculation over the 27-year-old's future is of no interest to him.
Mourinho, 58, said: "He is such a professional, committed with the team, performing well.
"I’ve nothing to speak with him about. He has three years of his contract remaining.
"Unless he wants to speak with me about it… and until now he never approached me in relation to anything."
