Five of Barcelona’s most talented youngsters are wanted by big clubs, although it remains to be seen how many of them will accept offers, according to a new report.

Arthur, Francisco Trincão, Carles Aleñá, Pedri, and Emerson are the four players being linked with interest from many teams looking to bolster their squads.

Arthur is the only one of the group who currently plays for Barcelona. The midfielder is said to be wanted by Paris Saint-Germain as well as several English clubs. It is understood several teams will be making offers for him, but the blaugrana will reject them. The midfielder is considered an essential part of a long-term project at the Camp Nou.

Trincão is playing for Braga in Portugal, although he has already agreed to join the Catalans next season. Several clubs in the Bundesliga, La Liga, and Serie A are mentioned as possible loan options. Another possibility is for him to be loaned back to Braga.

Aleñá is on loan at Real Betis and there’s a good chance he could remain there next season.

Pedri, who plays for Las Palmas, has already agreed to join Barcelona starting next season. However, many clubs are on the lookout for a possible loan: Real Betis, Celta Vigo, Real Sociedad, and Ajax are mentioned as possible suitors. Another possibility is for the youngster to remain at Las Palmas, or, join Barcelona B if the youth team is promoted at the end of this season.

Emerson is another player currently not at Barcelona. He plays alongside Aleñá at Betis, but he has been impressing quite a bit lately. It is said that Inter Milan, AC Milan, and Tottenham Hotspur are interested in the Brazilian fullback. However, he may finally play for Barcelona, especially if Nélson Semedo leaves next season.
