Premier League clubs circling as Barcelona to sell/offload ELEVEN senior players

Premier League clubs are circling as Barcelona prepare to sell eight players this summer.

Marca says it has been claimed that a total of 11 players have been deemed surplus to requirements and the club have reportedly made it clear they will have to seek pastures new.

Thomas Vermaelen, Jeison Murillo and Kevin-Prince Boateng are all out of contract at the Nou Camp this summer and will be leaving for a fresh start.

And another eight players who will be sold by the club this summer, for the right price.

Those out-of-favour players Jasper Cillessen, Nelson Semedo, Samuel Umtiti, Ivan Rakitic, Andre Gomes, Denis Suarez, Malcom and Philippe Coutinho.

Rakitic is wanted by Manchester United and while Valverde wants to keep hold of the Croatian, club chiefs are willing to part ways with the midfielder.

Gomes and Suarez, who had Premier League loan spells at Everton and Arsenal last season, are yet to have their long-term futures cleared up by the club.

And that's the case for Cillessen and Coutinho as well, though the club will listen to potential suitors should offers arrive.
