The Blaugrana have already missed out on Antoine Griezmann in this window, but will be hoping to secure a few signings ahead of next season, while players will inevitably have to leave.
The Independent says that midfielder Andre Gomes is likely to be shown to exit door before the 2018/19 campaign gets underway, with clubs such as Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and his former side, Valencia, reportedly in for his signature.
Rafinha, who spent the last six months of last season on loan at Inter Milan, could also leave permanently this window, as well as striker Paco Alcacer and winger Aleix Vidal.
Alcacer did not feature much in the previous campaign and is said to be after first team football, while Vidal’s story is similar. The Spaniard was close to leaving the Catalan club in January, but instead stayed to fight for a position in Ernesto Valverde’s plans.
The Liverpool Echo have claimed that the Reds are after 23-year-old Colombian defender Yerry Mina, who has struggled to impress since arriving at the Blaugrana, according to reports in Spain.
As far as incoming players are concerned, Chelsea winger Willian is believed to be a target for the Catalans, with Mundo Deportivo recently claiming the player is pushing for the move.
Mexico’s 2018 FIFA World Cup star Hirving Lozano is said to be on their radar as well, following his impressive performances for his country in Russia, while 21-year-old Ajax Amsterdam midfielder Frenkie De Jong has also been closely followed by the club.
In addition, former Barca star Thiago Alcantara has been spoken about as a potential target, along with Girona star Pedro Porro. The 18-year-old attacker is reportedly also being chased by Real Madrid after he enjoyed a fantastic season with Girona’s youth team, scoring 15 goals and assisting 30 strikes.
