FC Barcelona ready to offload four players in January transfer window

FC Barcelona are willing to sell four players in the January transfer window.

The move is to help the club raise funds for other targets, with Ronald Koeman saying he is not impressed by the balance of his side.

Reports from Mundo Deportivo have confirmed that the club is looking for alternatives for Ousmane Dembélé, Martin Braithwaite, Carles Aleñá and Junior Firpo, with defender Samuel Umtiti on the list, although the defence problems in Barcelona could save the latter from chop.

The future of Riqui Puig is also shrouded in mystery with Koeman said not to be his fan even though the club rates the youngster highly and wouldn’t want to let him leave.

The mentioned players are on the market as the club seek to return for both Memphis Depay and Eric García from Lyon and Man City respectively. Koeman wants another forward and another defender for his team so those two are still the priorities in the market.

The duo has their contracts expiring in the summer with the respective clubs meaning they will be free to talk to clubs in January. Instead of losing them for free, it is believed that bar any calamity, the two players who were linked with Barca in the summer, will be playing in the Camp Nou in the second half of the season.
