Barcelona and Juventus are in talks over a swap deal involving Ivan Rakitic and Federico Bernardeschi, according to a report.

Barcelona and Juventus are reportedly locked in talks over a potential swap deal involving Ivan Rakitic and Federico Bernardeschi before the end of the January transfer window.

Rakitic has recently worked his way back into favour at Camp Nou, but the Croatia international continues to be linked with a move away from the Spanish champions.

Bernardeschi, meanwhile, has been a regular since Maurizio Sarri's arrival but is yet to score in 14 Serie A appearances during the 2019-20 campaign.

According to AS, the two European giants are currently in talks over a possible swap involving the pair, with the deal potentially going through before the winter window closes for business.

The report also claims that the idea was considered last summer before Ernesto Valverde, who was replaced by Quique Setien as Barca boss earlier this week, refused to sign off on the move.

Rakitic has also been linked with Juve's domestic rivals AC Milan and Inter Milan.
