The midfielder has his eye on Sevilla's Kounde and Leipzig's Olmo when he takes over
Barcelona's defeat to Rayo Vallecano proved the end for Ronald Koeman, who was finally dismissed after a really poor start to the season, with Barça ninth in LaLiga and a long way from the objectives set at the start of the campaign.
Sergi Barjuan is currently in temporary charge but president Joan Laporta has a clear successor in mind: the Barça coach wants the first team to be taken over by club legend Xavi Hernandez, who is currently the Al Sadd boss.
And Eduardo Inda has revealed on El Chiringuito the two players that the former Barça and Spain midfielder wants to sign when he replaces Koeman.
The first is Sevilla centre-back Jules Kounde, who is one of the most highly-rated defenders in LaLiga and has been the subject of bids from Manchester City and Chelsea in the past.
The second is Dani Olmo, the RB Leipzig forward who came through the ranks at Barça before joining Dinamo Zagreb as a 16-year-old.
