The January transfer window is only a couple of months away, and FC Barcelona are reportedly interested in signing some reinforcements. Here are 10 stars Ernesto Valverde could target in the upcoming window.
The first player English publication the Daily Express expects to head towards the Camp Nou is Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho. The Brazilian handed in a transfer request at the beginning of the season as he pushed for a move to the Blaugrana. The Merseyside team stood firm, however, and refused to allow the 25-year-old to leave.
Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera is another footballer who has been linked with the Catalan club on more than one occasion. Valverde worked with the central midfielder at Athletic Bilbao, where they shared some success together.
There is a possibility the Blaugrana could reunite with a former star of theirs in Thiago Alcantara, according to the Daily Express. The Spaniard left the club in 2013 to get more game time, but the La Liga outfit apparently now feels the 26-year-old is good enough to take the side forward.
Other players linked with Barcelona, according to the Daily Express, are Christian Eriksen, Leon Goretzka, Saul Niguez, Maxime Lopez, Nabil Fekir, Inigo Martinez and Daniel Parejo.
