Top Barcelona transfer targets

It is unlikely that Barcelona will bolster their squad during the January transfer window, but there are a number of targets being lined up with a view to making a series of summer swoops.

Neymar is the number one target and, despite missing out last summer, Barca are determined to strike a deal with Paris Saint-Germain that will allow the Brazilian to return to Camp Nou.

The club have confirmed that they are considering a move for Valencia forward Rodrigo. The Brazil-born Spain international is deemed to be the ideal short-term replacement for the injured Luis Suarez.

As the Catalan giants look to a long-term future without Suarez, Inter striker Lautaro Martinez is considered the perfect alternative and a player who is already fostering a partnership with Lionel Messi with Argentina.

Matthijs de Ligt is still a target for Barcelona and they would love to reunite the Dutch youngster with his former Ajax team-mate Frenkie de Jong, but will be forced to wait for now.
