Barcelona are reportedly still open to offers for as many as 12 new players this summer, with Luis Suarez, Arturo Vidal and Samuel Umtiti among those free to leave.

Barcelona are reportedly looking to offload as many as 12 more players during the summer transfer window.

A tumultuous 2019-20 campaign on and off the field has led to demands for change from the top to the bottom of the club, including a drastic overhaul of the playing squad.

New manager Ronald Koeman has been brought in to oversee that, and Mundo Deportivo claims that up to 12 players face uncertain futures at Camp Nou due to the club's need to trim their wage bill.

Luis Suarez - Barca's third-highest scorer of all time - is among those understood to be on his way out, with Italian champions Juventus nearing a deal for the Uruguay international but Atletico Madrid also interested.

Samuel Umtiti is also reportedly deemed surplus to requirements by Koeman, while Arturo Vidal is thought to be on the verge of joining Inter Milan.

Jean-Clair Todibo, Martin Braithwaite, Nelson Semedo, Rafinha, Junior Firpo and Miranda are among the other first-team names Koeman is willing to offload.

The Dutchman is also reportedly keen to trim his squad below first-team level, with Moussa Wague, Monchu and Oriol Busquets free to leave this summer.

One player who will be staying at the club is captain Lionel Messi, though, after he was reluctantly forced into a U-turn over his transfer request.

Barca's 2020-21 campaign does not get underway until September 26, when they host Villarreal.
