It's already been a big summer of transfers thanks to Real Madrid's £300m splurge - and Europe's top clubs show no signs of stopping.
Football Whispers have scoured the day's European press to bring you the very best of the transfer rumours doing the rounds.
Barcelona will let 10 players leave this summer - if their valuations are met. Philippe Coutinho is already a peripheral figure but Barca expect more than £89.23m for the Brazilian. Back-up goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen is available at £26.77m and Croatian midfielder Ivan Rakitic - linked with Manchester United - can also leave, though coach Ernesto Valverde is reluctant to sell him.
Full-back Nelson Semedo has asked to leave Barca amid interest from Atletico Madrid, while Malcom's agent will begin talks about his client's future. Denis Suarez and Rafinha are not in Valverde's plans and Andre Gomes has an agreement with Everton after impressing on loan last season. Finally, youngsters Marc Cucurella and Sergi Palencia will be sold. (Mundo Deportivo)
