Luis Suarez has been a great servant to Barcelona.

Signed in 2014 from Liverpool for £64.98 million, Suarez has played a key role as Barcelona have won three La Liga titles.

In his five seasons at the club, he has made 231 appearances and hit the back of the net 168 times.

However, at 32 years old, Suarez has recently shown signs that his age is catching up with him.

The Uruguayan international's goal tally has declined this season, 'only' scoring 16 times in 31 appearances.

While that is a decent return, it isn't quite good enough.

Barcelona fans have become extremely concerned with Suarez's form in recent weeks, with some even deeming him as 'finished'.

His failure to score away at Lyon earlier this week means he hasn't scored away in the Champions League for 16 games.

Indeed, amid his struggles, it is believed that Barcelona will sign a replacement for Suarez in the summer.

But who do the fans want the club to sign?

Luis Suarez has shown signs of slowing down this season

Mundo Deportivo have run a poll asking Barcelona fans who they want to replace Suarez.

Fans were given an option of 20 players, and here's how they voted...

Top 12:

Kylian Mbappe - 48%

Harry Kane - 14%

Luka Jovic - 7%

Maxi Gomez - 4%

Neymar - 4%

Mauro Icardi - 3%

Roberto Firmino - 3%

Timo Werner - 2%

Krzysztof Piątek - 2%

Andre Silva - 2%

Nicolas Pépé - 2%

Antoine Griezmann - 2%

Barcelona fans want Mbappe to replace Suarez, but there are doubts whether he would want to join

So it seems Barcelona fans want the club to sign Mbappe more than any other striker.

He will not come cheap, though, and there are doubts whether he would even want to move to Barca at this stage in his career.

The second most popular choice was Kane but, again, he has only recently extended his contract at Tottenham and is unlikely to move in the summer.

Luka Jovic, though, is a much more realistic target.

Luka Jovic has impressed for Frankfurt and would be a realistic signing for Barcelona

The Benfica player, who is currently on loan at Frankfurt, has scored 20 times in 30 appearances for the Bundesliga club.

At just 21 years old, he has his best years well ahead of him and could represent good value for money if they were able to seal a deal for him.

Other names that gained votes were Celta's Gomez, Icardi of Inter Milan and Firmino of Liverpool.
