Ronald Koeman gives Barcelona four-player shortlist for summer signings

Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman has handed the club a four-player shortlist to sign in the next four weeks before the close of the transfer window, report Marca.

Three of the players represented the Netherlands under Koeman with Olympique Lyonnais forward Memphis Depay chief among them, alongside Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum and Inter central defender Stefan de Vrij.

It is claimed that Manchester City defender Eric Garcia, who came through the Blaugrana’s youth academy, is the other player who has been identified by Koeman.

Memphis, Wijnaldum and Garcia are all players who are entering the final year of their respective contracts, meaning that all three of their parent clubs are likely to considering a sale at a reduced market price.

Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic is the only confirmed arrival at the Camp Nou so far this summer – although young forwards Pedri and Francisco Trincao have joined from Las Palmas and Braga respectively – with midfielders Arthur Melo and Ivan Rakitic among those who have left the club.

    De Vrij and Wijnaldum won’t leave their clubs. That has been already confirmed.
    Memphis Depay is a realistic option and if Barca can include Umtiti and J.Firpo in the deal, it will be perfect. His price is just 25 mil.
    Eric Garcia is a must for Barcelona. He is La Masia product and Bartomeu has to make everything possible to bring him back. But, we will need another CB as well. Pique and Lenglet are not playing well from long time. Upamecano is my choice, but there may be other cheaper option.
