Barcelona are reportedly prepared to sell Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele in order to finance a deal for Borussia Dortmund star Erling Braut Haaland this summer.

The 20-year-old striker is one of Europe's most sought-after footballers and has been heavily linked with a move to Camp Nou, along with Premier League trio Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea.

According to Marca, Barcelona will need to sell first-team players this summer if they are to spend big on new recruits, with French forwards Griezmann and Dembele set to be put up for sale, as neither have managed to live up to expectation since joining the Spanish giants.

Meanwhile, Philippe Coutinho is another high-profile player who could leave the club, with a number of Premier League teams believed to be monitoring his situation, while Samuel Umtiti, Miralem Pjanic, Francisco Trincao, Neto and Junior Firpo could also depart the Catalan outfit.

Haaland, who scored a remarkable 41 goals in as many appearances across all competitions last season, is valued by Dortmund at around £170m.

Barca may turn ther attention to Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez if they fail in their pursuit of the Norwegian.

The La Liga side have already agreed deals to sign City pair Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia, who will both join the club for free when their contracts expire at the end of this month.
