Arturo Vidal, Junior Firpo, and Samuel Umtiti are the three players mentioned as possible makeweights.

It’s however yet to be seen if the players will be willing to make the move, although Arturo Vidal is rumoured to be interested in a return to the Serie A, and would love to play under Antonio Conte.

Italian media outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport has claimed Barcelona have offered the 22-year-old a long-term deal worth £8.75million (£170k-a-week).

The Argentine international is currently paid £48,000-a-week at Inter Milan, who can’t match Barcelona’s offer due to the financial impact of the Coronavirus.
