Ernesto Valverde replaced Luis Enrique as Blaugrana manager ahead of the 2017/18 campaign, and will be looking to strengthen key areas of the squad he has inherited.

Paris Saint-Germain's Marco Verratti is one of the players tipped to join Barca, with L'Equipe recently reporting the player will attempt to force a move from France.
According to Spanish publication Marca, Brazil international Paulinho is the player the Blaugrana could target if they fail to land Verratti, while Gerard Deulofeu is reportedly expected to return to his boyhood club during the off-season.
Borussia Dortmund's Ousmane Dembele has also been heavily linked with the Camp Nou club, but Pep Guardiola's Manchester City have also reportedly entered the race for the 20-year-old France international.
Various English media have reported on Barca's interest in Arsenal right back Hector Bellerin, but according to Blaugrana midfielder Denis Suarez, the defender has admitted a move away from London could be complicated.
