Man City chasing Barcelona striker

The former Arsenal ace has failed to make an impact for Barcelona in Spain and could be interested in a move, say the Daily Mail.

Hughes said after their 3-2 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday: “What we need is that consistent level of performance and that resoluteness to see games out and take something positive from every game.

“We are struggling on that point. We are a young team in terms of experience and development but we will get better.

“We are still a team with obvious frailties and we will work to address them when the transfer window opens.

“It’s not a problem that expectations are suddenly high. People are realistic in our development. We are only seven games into the Premier League season, which has been fragmented with the international breaks, and now we are into another one. It has been difficult to get the benefit of clear weeks to work on the team.”
