FC Barcelona is one of the teams that made the best use of the current transfer market, but the club's sports management is aware that there are still reinforcements to be added with the aim of fighting for all possible titles in the coming season. In view of this, Xavi Hernandez, the current coach of FC Barcelona, is waiting to be able to register the five new players in LaLiga Santander (Andreas Christensen, Franck Kessié, Raphinha, Lewandowski and Koundé), so they have already sent the documentation to the economic control of the tournament to give continuity to their plan in the transfer window.

The blaugranas are still hoping to reinforce the full-backs despite the recent denial of César Azpilicueta, who in the next few hours will renew his contract with Chelsea until June 2024.

LA Galaxy interested in another Barcelona player, Xavi does not want him

One year after Lionel Messi's departure from Barcelona, will he return "home"?

That is why they are looking for alternatives and the recent visit of Tottenham's owner to Barcelona could end up being a key move. According to reports from Spain, Joe Lewis has been cruising in his personal yacht in Port Vell and there has been speculation about a possible meeting with the leaders of the Culé team, where the transfer of Sergio Reguilón, another of Xavi Hernández's desires, would be discussed.

The former Real Madrid player is one of FC Barcelona's options to reinforce their left wing, where there is only one natural player for the position: The Spanish player is in search of teams and it seems that the Blaugrana have his name on the agenda, as well as Sevilla and Inter Milan. According to English media, Tottenham would not let him leave for less than 25 million euros, with the aim of compensating the investment made for him two years ago, when he arrived from the 'merengue' team.

Depay would be part of the operation

Another pending issue that FC Barcelona's sports management hopes to resolve is the continuity of Memphis, who has already been informed that he is not part of the Catalan coach's plans for the coming season. The Dutch player does not want to leave the Camp Nou, but Laporta remains firm in his position and is already negotiating with other teams for his transfer. The striker interested Tottenham a few weeks ago. However, according to Spanish media, the hypothetical meeting would include the Dutch international, with the aim of facilitating the arrival of Reguilón.
