Barcelona want to sell unsettled midfielder Ivan Rakitic during the January transfer window, according to a report.

Barcelona are reportedly hopeful of selling Ivan Rakitic during the January transfer window.

The Croatia international has only started two La Liga matches for the Spanish champions this season and continues to be linked with a move away from the club.

Barca have allegedly turned down an offer of £13m from an unnamed Premier League club for the 2018 World Cup finalist as they hold out for closer to £30m.

According to the London Evening Standard, the Catalan giants want to sell the former Sevilla captain at the start of 2020 amid interest from the likes of AC Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus and Atletico Madrid.

However, the report claims that a move will largely depend on the player, who will almost certainly have to lower his wage demands in order to secure a mid-season exit.

Rakitic - contracted to Barca until June 2021 - has scored 34 times and provided 38 assists in 278 appearances for his current club since arriving from Sevilla in the summer of 2014.
