Barcelona are reportedly willing to part with 14 players in the upcoming summer transfer window.

The LaLiga giants are reportedly keen on bringing in Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund and need to free up their wage bill in order to afford the striker's wages.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Blaugrana are preparing to initiate a "remodelling" of their squad going into next season. A report from the Daily Mail also claims that they are willing to prioritise bringing in Haaland over extending Lionel Messi's contract.

But they are set to part with a number of first-team players, including, Neto, Samuel Umtiti, Junior Firpo, Matheus Fernandes, Martin Braithwaite, Philippe Coutinho, and Miralem Pjanic. However, Umtiti, Coutinho, and Pjanic might be the hardest players to move due to their high wages.

Ronald Koeman is also looking at bringing in Sergio Aguero, Gini Wijnaldum, and Memphis Depay, and the Catalan club are also on the verge of tying up a deal for Manchester City defender Eric Garcia.

Barcelona are currently third on the LaLiga table, are relying on a late collapse from leaders Atletico Madrid, who are two points clear of rivals Real Madrid following the 2-1 win over Real Sociedad.
