Ronald Koeman does not expect Barcelona to make any new signings before the start of their 2020-21 La Liga season.

Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman has said that he does not expect the Catalan giants to make any new signings before the start of their 2020-21 La Liga season against Villarreal on September 26.

The La Liga giants have been linked with a number of new players over the last few weeks, with Inter Milan's Lautaro Martinez still believed to be a leading target for the club.

Lyon's Memphis Depay and Manchester City's Eric Garcia have also been linked with moves to Camp Nou.

However, Barca are short of funds due to the financial impact of the coronavirus outbreak, and Koeman is doubtful that he will be able to call on any more new players before the start of the campaign.

"We're working towards the new season and I think we will go into it with the same group of players that we have now for pre-season," Koeman told reporters.

Philippe Coutinho is set to play a part for Barca this term, having returned from a successful loan spell at Bayern Munich, while Miralem Pjanic, Trincao, Matheus Fernandes and Pedri are new faces at the club.
