Barcelona are willing to part ways with three midfielders to free up space and funds to sign Philippe Coutinho and Matthijs de Ligt in January, reports Mundo Deportivo.
Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho and Ajax defender De Ligt are key targets for Barca, who are considering moving on midfielders of Rafinha, Denis Suarez and Arda Turan, although they are yet to receive offers for the trio.
Brazil international Rafinha, who is currently injured, wants to leave the club in search of first-team action elsewhere ahead of next summer’s World Cup. Barca are aware of this but are unsure whether to sell him permanently or loan him out instead.
Suarez, meanwhile, rejected a move to Napoli last summer in order to succeed at the Nou Camp and is not considering leaving the club in January.
Turkish midfielder Arda does not form part of coach Ernesto Valverde’s first-team plans and is attracting interest from his former club Galatasaray.
