Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Barcelona on Monday, July 13.

The buildup to the summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Barcelona eye possible reinforcements.

The Spanish champions spent big on Antoine Griezmann during the summer but missed out on a big-name striker in January, leading to speculation that they could splash the cash again when the window reopens.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer news from the Camp Nou.

Monday morning's Barcelona transfer talk news roundup:

Antonio Conte 'wants to bring N'Golo Kante to Inter Milan'

Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte is reportedly keen to bring Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante to San Siro.

Conte was in charge of the Blues when they signed Kante from Leicester City, and the France international played a key role in the London club winning the 2016-17 Premier League title.

Kante remains a key figure for Chelsea, but the 29-year-old's future continues to be called into question, with Barcelona and Real Madrid both recently credited with an interest.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Inter boss is keen to reunite with the 2018 World Cup winner at San Siro as he attempts to put together a squad capable of wrestling the Serie A title away from Juventus.

Kante, who is currently battling to overcome a hamstring injury, has scored three times in 27 appearances for Frank Lampard's side during the 2019-20 campaign.

The midfielder has a contract at Stamford Bridge until the summer of 2023.

Ousmane Dembele sale 'would cost Barcelona £18m'

Borussia Dortmund reportedly stand to receive £18m if Barcelona sell Ousmane Dembele during the next transfer window.

After a big-money switch to Camp Nou in 2017, Dembele has endured a frustrating three years through a combination of lack of consistency and injuries.

At a time when Barcelona are keen to raise funds for other players, there has been frequent speculation regarding the France international's future.

However, according to Bild, the Catalan outfit will have to hand Dortmund £18m of any fee which they receive for his signature.

Despite a number of bonuses yet to be activated, the report claims that a deal is in place where Barcelona must fulfil their obligations regarding set clauses.

With Dembele already expected to be sold for much lower than the initial £94m which was shelled out three years ago, it leaves Barcelona facing the prospect of making a bigger loss on the winger than has been reported.
