Barcelona plan to extend Riqui Puig's contract at Camp Nou until June 2023, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.

Barcelona are reportedly planning to extend Riqui Puig's contract at Camp Nou until June 2023.

The 21-year-old's future has been the subject of debate in recent months as his current deal with Ronald Koeman's side is due to expire at the end of the 2020-21 campaign.

Barca have the option of activating a two-year extension, though, and according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the Catalan giants will be ensuring that the midfielder cannot leave on a free transfer next summer.

Romano also claims that Koeman's team are not currently looking to loan out the Spaniard during the January window despite a lack of action this term.

Puig, who came through the club's youth system, has only played four minutes of La Liga football this season, but he did feature on three occasions in the group stages of the Champions League.

Both Arsenal and Manchester City are allegedly interested in his services.
