Betis want Ceballos to go to Barca

Dani Ceballos is rapidly becoming one of the most wanted men in Spain, and Real Betis would much rather sell him to Barcelona than Real Madrid, that's according to Marca at least.

Vice-president Lorenzo Serra Ferrer has a good relationship with the Blaugrana, and would rather he moved to Camp Nou, with the midfielder having a release clause of just €15m.

Messi wants four players sold

Lionel Messi popped into Barcelona over the weekend, before heading off on his honeymoon, and told the club they must sell four players this summer.

According to Don Balon, Messi has called for Munir, Thomas Vermaelen, Arda Turan and André Gomes to be sold, ahead of the new season under Ernesto Valverde.

Lucas Digne wanted by Inter

Lucas Digne is one of three players wanted by Inter Milan this summer, with the San Siro side also keen on Dalbert Henrique and Jose Luis Gaya.

The Corriere dello Sport report Henrique is the priority but they could turn to Digne, who knows sporting director Walter Sabatini well from their time at Roma.

Arda wants to stay at Barcelona

Despite all the speculation to the contrary, Arda Turan plans to stay at Barcelona next season and has no intention of leaving this summer.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Arda has not received any serious offers and is not interested in moving to Turkey. Instead, he is keen to try and impress Valverde.

Samper wants first-team chance

Another man keen to impress the new coach is Sergi Samper, who is eager to force his way into Valverde's plans next season.

Samper still has three years left on his current deal and told L'Esportiu: "The idea is to stay here, make a good preseason and earn a place in the team."
