Samuel Umtiti - linked with Chelsea and Arsenal - could be allowed to leave Barcelona for as little as £26m this summer, according to a report.

Barcelona could reportedly sell Samuel Umtiti for just €30m (£26m) this summer.

The France international will allegedly be surplus to requirements at Camp Nou heading into the 2020-21 campaign, leading to suggestions of interest from the Premier League.

Chelsea and Arsenal are both believed to be weighing up offers for the France international, who has only made 11 La Liga appearances this season due to injury and the presence of Clement Lenglet.

Barca were thought to be looking for around £44m for the 2018 World Cup winner, but according to Sport, Umtiti could be available for as little as €30m (£26m).

A recent report claimed that the defender's knee problem, which requires ongoing treatment to manage, was putting off potential buyers.

Umtiti joined Barca from Lyon in 2016 and made 114 appearances for the Catalan giants in all competitions, winning two La Liga titles and two Copa del Rey crowns during his time at Camp Nou.
