Revealed: The five players Barcelona will sell to sign Philippe Coutinho

Barcelona are willing to offload four players in order to help fund a move for Philippe Coutinho.

The Spanish giants remain desperate to sign the Liverpool forward, with a fresh move being prepared in January.

This incredible transfer saga is set to resume into 2018 after Barca failed to capture the Brazilian last summer.

Four players out

Arda Turan

The Turkish midfielder has endured a tricky spell at the Nou Camp since his arrival from Atletico Madrid back in 2015.

The 30-year-old was mightly impressive under Diego Simeone in the Spiahsn capital but has been unable to replicate such form in Catalunya.

He has had to the impossible task of uprooting the likes of Andres Iniesta, Ivan Rakatic and Sergio Busquets, meaning appearances have been limited.

The player looks destined to leave Barcelona in the near future.

Denis Suarez

The former Villarreal midfielder showed many promising signs during his time in Castellón.

However, Suarez has become a bit-part player at the Nou Camp, more than not starting on the bench.

The Spaniard may opt to end his time at Barcelona in order to seek more regular game time.

Paco Alcacer

Like the aforementioned, Paco Alcacer has failed to replicate the La Liga form which earnt him the move to Barcelona.

He netted 13 times in the league for Valencia the season prior to joining the Catalan club.

He has only found himself playing second fiddle to Luis Suarez, with the Uruguayan a key figure for Barca.

The Spaniard will be hopeful of going to Russia with his nation and may need to seek regular football to do so.

Aleix Vidal

Last season, Vidal made just six league apperances last season.

He has been kept out of the side by midfielder Sergi Roberto who has been converted to a right-back.

Roberto has impressed since this transition, keeping the former Sevilla player out the side.
