Barcelona chief Robert rewrites shopping list with wingers on agenda

Bayern Munich midfielder Douglas Costa remains on the shopping list of Barcelona sports chief Robert Fernandez.

AS says Robert is in the market for one, possibly two, wide midfield signings this summer, with Douglas Costa high on the agenda.

Borussia Dortmund striker Ousmane Dembele, Leicester City's Riyad Mahrez and Sevilla midfielder Vitolo are also under consideration.

Metz prospect Ismaila Sarr is another being discussed inside Barca as new coach Ernesto Valverde's considers changing the system utilised by predecessor Luis Enrique.

Should Valverde switch to a 4-2-3-1 or 3-4-3, it will mean Barca needing to find extra wide players to make it work - a prospect which now has Robert rewriting their summer shopping list.
