Barcelona has been linked with luring Mohamed Salah away from Liverpool at the conclusion of the season, as well as completing a transfer for Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski. This summer, the forwards will enter the final year of their respective contracts and have yet to sign new contracts.
During his time at Anfield, Salah has developed into one of the top players in the world, while Lewandowski has continued to score goals season after season in Germany. And the pair's reputations at the Nou Camp would undoubtedly improve.
Barcelona has had a difficult season after being plunged into financial trouble as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. They also failed to go past the group stages of the Champions League.
But if they sign Salah and Lewandowski, they'll be a force to be reckoned with once more. And, assuming the transfers go through, Express Sport takes a look at their promising XI.
Ter Stegen is the goalkeeper.
Marc-Andre ter Stegen has been a rock in goal for Barcelona for nearly eight years, keeping an astonishing 126 clean sheets in 316 appearances for the club. Boss Xavi is sure to be pleased with the German's performance thus far and should keep him as his No. 1 for the time being.

Dest, Araujo, Garcia, and Alba make up the defense.
With Salah and Lewandowski in their lineup, Barcelona would most likely play a 4-3-3 with Sergino Dest at right back and Jordi Alba at left back. If Barcelona can keep Ronald Araujo at the club after his outstanding performances this season, he will remain his starting spot at center-back, with former Manchester City defender Aric Garcia as his partner. If Gerard Pique wants to stay at the Nou Camp, he'll have to make do with a bench spot.
De Jong, Pedri, and Gavi play in the midfield.
Following Barcelona's disastrous start to the season, the midfield trio of Frenkie de Jong, Pedri, and Gavi have finally begun to demonstrate their worth in recent weeks. If they continue to line up beside each other, the trio will be entrusted with disrupting opponent play, winning possession, and getting the ball to the front three.

Salah, Lewandowski, and Aubameyang are the forwards.
If the Catalan giants sign Salah and Lewandowski, they will be thrown into the team right away. They are also a significant boost over Barcelona's existing attackers.
Salah would be confident in transferring his Premier League form to La Liga, and his presence might help the Spaniards reclaim their place in the Champions League.
The Liverpool star might play on the right side of the attack, with ex-Arsenal striker Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, who has been sensational since joining the club, on the left. As a result, Lewandowski would be able to take over as the team's offensive leader. This season, the Poland international has already scored 45 goals and might add to that total in the Nou Camp.
Barcelona could be on the verge of assisting Liverpool in their pursuit of Mohamed Salah.

Barca would be recognized as one of the finest teams in Europe once again, and could dominate contests for the next few years with such a squad.
