Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has spoken about the possibility of signing a striker in January to take the place of Munir, who left for Seville this week.

After completing a more than acceptable season on loan at Alavés a year ago, scoring 14 goals in 37 games, Munir has found chances of first team action few and far between on his return to Barcelona, the club where he came thropugh the youth system after signing from Rayo Majadahonda in 2011, when he was still only 15.

Munir scored 12 goals in 56 games at Barcelona.

However, the clubs have instead reached an agreement for him to join the club in the January window, with Barcelona annoucing they have received a €1,050,000 fee. He has won one global cap for Spain, in September 2014.

He is fluent in playing across the front line, although he has been deployed primarily through the center by Barcelona this season.

In addition, Goal understands that Munir's acquisition will make a move for Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata less likely.

In addition to Munir, Sevilla also announced Friday an agreement had been reached for Ajax centre-back Maximilian Wöber.

But Emery is looking to secure a loan deal for the 25-year-old which does not favour Barcelona or Morata's move to the Camp Nou if funds are not available.
