The buildup to the summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Barcelona eye possible reinforcements.
The Spanish champions spent big on Antoine Griezmann during the summer but missed out on a big-name striker in January, leading to speculation that they could splash the cash again when the window reopens.
Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer news from the Camp Nou.
Tuesday morning's Barcelona transfer talk news roundup:
Arsenal are reportedly giving consideration to paying £27m in order to tie up a season-long loan deal for Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho.
Despite being keen to part ways with the Brazilian on a permanent basis, Barcelona are said to accept that none of their European rivals will be prepared to meet their asking price this summer.
According to Sport, that has led to the Catalan giants setting out their demands with regards to another season-long loan, which would come on the back of a similar spell being spent at Bayern Munich.
The report claims that Arsenal were weighing up the possibility of shelling out £27m to bring in the former Liverpool star for the next campaign.
While Barcelona are said to be looking for a fee of £18.2m, Coutinho is also earning £9.1m per year at Camp Nou.
Coutinho's agent Kia Joorabchian has links with the North London outfit, seemingly increasing the chances of a deal being successfully negotiated.
Barcelona are reportedly ready to prioritise the signing of Manchester City defender Eric Garcia.
While the Catalan giants have recently been linked with attack-minded players, there is also a desire to strengthen at the back.
That has led to Garcia, a former youth player at Camp Nou, being identified as a target ahead of next season.
According to The Sun, Barcelona view the Spaniard as a long-term replacement for Gerard Pique, who turned 33 in February.
However, City are making every effort to agree a new five-year contract with the 19-year-old, also being prepared to treble his wages.
Garcia has made eight appearances for City since the resumption of action on June 17.
