Barcelona reportedly had the opportunity to sign Napoli forward Fernando Llorente during the final days of the January transfer window.
Despite being linked with a wide range of players, Barcelona failed to bring in a replacement for Luis Suarez, who is expected to be sidelined until May with a knee injury.
However, while offers were rejected for some of their targets, it appears that the Catalan giants were presented with a chance to bring in cover for their first-choice frontman.
According to AS, Llorente was proposed to Barcelona as a potential signing, only for the club to say no to the possibility of the 34-year-old being brought in as cover.
While the Spaniard has made 24 outings for Napoli this season, just four of those appearances have come from the starting lineup.
