Barcelona have brought in Antoine Griezmann, Frenkie de Jong and Neto this summer but they may not have completed their spending just yet.

According to Sport, manager Ernesto Valverde wants the club to bring in two more players before the window closes on September 2nd.

The report claims Barcelona want a left-back and are in talks for Junior Firpo and Augsburg defender Philipp Max. Firpo is the top target but Barca don’t want to pay more than €25m.

Barcelona could also sign another attacker to replace Malcom, who is expected to depart after just one season at the club.

The Brazilian may not be the only player heading for the exit door either. Philippe Coutinho could also go, and if he does it’s likely a move for Neymar really might be on.

Other names in the frame to leave are Rafinha and Ivan Rakitic, and Valverde is hoping he has his final squad in place for the start of their tour of the United States.
