FC Barcelona are reportedly unlikely to lure their two Premier League targets to the Camp Nou during the current transfer window.
The Catalans have been linked with Manchester City's Eric Garcia as well as Liverpool's Georginio Wijnaldum.
Garcia has made it clear that he intends to leave Pep Guardiola's side when his contract comes to an end this season, and Guardiola himself has also confirmed that he expects the defender to go.
Wijnaldum was said to be one of Ronald Koeman's prime targets in the previous transfer window, but Barca failed to move for the Dutchman due to their financial situation.
Both players are said to be keen to join Barca, but the only way they are likely to sign a contract with the Spanish giants in January is on a free transfer, according to the Daily Mirror.
With both players' deals coming to an end at the conclusion of this season, they are in a position to negotiate pre-contracts ahead of the new campaign.
Barca boss Koeman has reportedly also admitted that the club will not be in a position to pay any transfer fees for players in the current transfer window.
