Torino’s Matteo Darmian and ​Sevilla’s Aleix Vidal are primary targets for Barcelona as Dani Alves prepares to announce his Camp Nou exit. Alves has reportedly rejected the Spanish champions’ offer of a new two-year deal in favour of a free transfer move to Paris Saint-Germain. Barcelona, who are two wins away from the treble this season, are unable to bring in immediate reinforcements as a result of the transfer ban imposed upon them by FIFA, which runs until January 2016. Both players are valued around 10-15m euros.

However, this has not prevented Luis Enrique from identifying possible targets, with Darmian and Vidal rumoured to be at the top of the Asturian’s list.
