In what would be a move that surprises no one, Barcelona could reportedly be looking to see Luuk de Jong out of the door of the club in January. This was one of the most strange decisions Ronald Koeman made when it came to roster management.

There isn’t much question that Luuk was Koeman’s man. The two have the Dutch connection and De Jong’s playstyle never really lined up with the talent that surrounded him.

In January it seems likely that the club will try to bolster its attack even further. That would mean the little minutes De Jong gets now will dwindle even further. It’s just a matter of finding out where he should be sent off to and who wants him.

De Jong didn't feature for Sevilla before his move so could still play for another club this season, and it's thought Besiktas may be interested.
