Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Barcelona on Wednesday, July 15.

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.

Wednesday morning's Barcelona transfer talk news roundup:

Barcelona 'offer Philippe Coutinho to Arsenal, Newcastle United'

Arsenal and Newcastle United have reportedly been offered the chance to sign out-of-favour Barcelona attacker Philippe Coutinho.

Having failed to make a name for himself in La Liga since arriving from Liverpool in 2018, Coutinho has been persistently linked with a move back to the Premier League.

Arsenal and Newcastle United are two top-flight clubs that have been tipped to move for the attacker this summer, with Bayern Munich turning down the opportunity to sign Coutinho on a permanent basis following his loan spell in Germany.

According to Goal, Barca are desperately trying to instigate a sale and have offered the former Liverpool man to Arsenal and Newcastle.

Barcelona are supposedly keen to raise funds to aid their pursuit of Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez, although Arsenal are strapped for cash themselves and would reportedly prefer a loan move for Coutinho rather than a permanent deal.

Coutinho will remain at Bayern until the end of the current campaign, where he has registered nine goals and eight assists across all competitions for the Bundesliga champions.

Neymar 'still wants Barcelona return as Paris Saint-Germain consider cashing in'

Paris Saint-Germain attacker Neymar could still make a sensational return to Barcelona this summer, according to a report.

Earlier this month, it was claimed that Barcelona had conceded defeat in their pursuit of Neymar amid financial worries in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the former Camp Nou star has less than two years left to run on his existing deal with PSG, and the Ligue 1 champions are rumoured to be having second thoughts on the situation.

Indeed, Mundo Deportivo claim that Neymar still keeps in contact with some of his former Blaugrana teammates and would be keen on a move back to Catalonia.

Contract talks between the player and PSG have supposedly stalled, and the report claims that the French outfit may entertain offers this summer before they risk losing the world's most expensive player for nothing in 2022.

PSG would be extremely unlikely to garner anything close to the £198m they forked out for Neymar in 2017, but Barca would allegedly be open to offloading out-of-favour players such as Ousmane Dembele, Samuel Umtiti, Philippe Coutinho and Ivan Rakitic in a part-exchange deal.

Neymar amassed 105 goals from 186 appearances for Barcelona before departing for the French capital, where he has registered 69 goals in 80 games across all competitions.
