Griezmann has already agreed Barca move

Today’s rumors start with none other than Antoine Griezmann who has apparently already agreed to join Barcelona in the summer, so say Mundo Deportivo.

We know this because Manchester United have turned their attentions back to the Frenchman but have been told Griezmann is already on his way to Barca.

However, as nothing has yet been signed United, along with Real Madrid and probably PSG will maintain their interest in Griezmann as he will be available for just €100m.

Barcelona in negotiations for Arthur

Another man who seemingly wants to move to Camp Nou is Gremio midfielder Arthur, with Sport reporting he has already said yes to Barcelona.

Sport are also reporting that the club are now in negotiations for the midfielder and hope to be able to bring him in for less than his €50m release clause. Good luck with that.

But Chelsea also want Arthur

If Barca really do want Arthur, they might want to get a move on with AS reporting that Chelsea are set to join the race for his signature.

Unlike Barca, Chelsea are more than happy to pay his release clause and see him as the long-term replacement for Cesc Fabregas.

Valencia want Vidal

Over at Superdeporte (via Football Espana) the talk is of Valencia making a move for Aleix Vidal.

Apparently Marcelino’s side have already made contact and may be ready to make Barcelona an offer.

Deulofeu wanted by Napoli

Gerard Deulofeu is a man in demand, just not by Barca it would seem. According to Rai Sport (via Football Italia) Napoli are considering taking him on loan in January.

Deulofeu has struggled to make much of an impact since returning to Camp Nou in the summer and is even struggling to make it into the squad at the moment.

With Ousmane Dembele closing in on a return to fitness, Deulofeu may find it even harder to secure game time, hence expect more of these rumors in the weeks to come.

Alcacer wanted by Everton?

And finally today we end with news that Everton rather like the look of Paco Alcacer, according to, yes you’ve guessed it, Don Balon.

Apparently Barca want to bring in Andre Silva from AC Milan, which means Alcacer would be surplus to requirements.

Everton, meanwhile, have not been impressed with Sandro Ramirez and think Alcacer could do a better job.
