Gignac: France striker emerges as Barça option - report

Barcelona's continuing search for a striker to provide back-up to their big-name trio of Leo Messi, Luis Suárez and Neymar could see them turn to Frenchman André-Pierre Gignac, according to a report in the Catalonia-based media.

Mundo Deportivo says the 30-year-old, currently at Mexican side Tigres UANL, is on a list of targets being looked at by Barça and reveals that Robert Fernández, the Spanish champions' technical secretary, has sounded out the player's interest in a switch to the Camp Nou.

Gignac (centre) was part of the France side that suffered final disappointment at Euro 2016.

Struggling to sign a striker

Los Azulgranas have been linked with a host of forwards including Nolito, Ousmane Dembélé, Ángel Correa, Luciano Vietto and Kevin Gameiro, but have so far been frustrated in their attempts to add to their options in attack.

Former Marseille man Gignac, who has 30 caps for France, was part of Les Bleus' squad at Euro 2016, making six appearances at the tournament as Didier Deschamps' hosts lost to Portugal in the final.
