Andre Gomes is already spying a move away from Barcelona in January.
The Portugal international came close to signing for Juventus in the final days of the summer market and has found himself frozen out since the deadline fell.
Diario Gol says Barca coach Ernesto Valverde has accepted Leo Messi's demand that he focus on other midfield options beyond Gomes, particularly Sergi Busquets.
It's suggested the midfielder has failed to settle at Barca and struggled to establish friendships inside the locker room.
Gomes is aware he's on the outer and knows he needs to get a move away in January or risk missing out on World Cup selection. Agent Jorge Mendes is already testing the ground for interest across Europe.
