Barcelona are reportedly expected to announce the double signing of Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen and AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie later this week.

Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie are reportedly expected to be confirmed as Barcelona players at some point this week.

Despite their well-documented financial issues, Barcelona will make widespread changes to their first-team squad during the summer transfer window.

While Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski appears at the top of Xavi's wishlist, work has already taken place behind the scenes to sign numerous players who are due to become free agents.

According to Sport, the Catalan giants will officially confirm that Christensen and Kessie have signed long-term contracts at Camp Nou over the coming days.

Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel has already acknowledged that Christensen is departing Stamford Bridge, ending a decade-long spell at Stamford Bridge which has seem him make 161 appearances in all competitions.

Kessie has been used more regularly at Milan, scoring six times during this season's Serie A title-winning campaign, and the 25-year-old will now look to break into Xavi's midfield trio.
