Barcelona reportedly identify Eric Garcia, Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum as their three priority targets in the January transfer window.

Barcelona have reportedly identified Georginio Wijnaldum, Memphis Depay and Eric Garcia as their three top targets for the January transfer window.

The cash-strapped Catalans - who sit fifth in the La Liga table - are expected to strengthen their squad this month after an underwhelming start to their 2020-21 campaign.

Wijnaldum, Depay and Garcia are all set to become free agents in the summer, but Sky Sports News claim that Barcelona are determined to land the trio this month.

However, the report adds that moves for all three players are unlikely to come to fruition until the summer, although the trio are now able to negotiate and sign pre-contractual agreements with other clubs after entering the final six months of their deals.

Pep Guardiola has admitted that Garcia is likely to leave after rejecting Manchester City's offer of a new contract, while Depay is not expected to depart this month with Lyon leading the way in Ligue 1.

Meanwhile, a recent report claimed that Wijnaldum is keen to stay on at Liverpool, but the Netherlands international is holding out for a contract offer which he feels reflects his value to the club.

Fringe players at Barcelona such as Samuel Umtiti, Junior Firpo and Riqui Puig could supposedly be moved on in order to raise the necessary funds for January transfer business.
