England could be a popular destination for Blaugrana stars when the season ends

Barcelona want to lighten the squad to push through with a move for Neymar or Lautaro Martinez and their openness to selling has not gone unnoticed in the Premier League. 

According to tabloid newspaper The Mirror, as many as nine players have been offered to English clubs, "including France star Antoine Griezmann and Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutino." 

The report explains the effect the coronavirus pandemic is having on Barça and the club's need to bring in funds to finance moves for other players. 

"They are open to offers for a huge number of players, with the exception being superstar Lionel Messi," the article adds.

Manchester United could push for Griezmann, while Luis Suarez's name is also mentioned along with Ousmane Dembele, Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal. 

Defender Samuel Umtiti also appears on the list (he's been linked with United and Arsenal) and Nelson Semedo and Sergi Roberto are both mentioned, too. 

Coutinho is, of course, brought up as well. Bayern Munich will not take up their option to buy him and any number of Premier League clubs could be keen on him, including Chelsea, Tottenham, Everton and Newcastle.
