Following Barcelona's most recent win against Leganes, the team is going to be crowned Champions of La Liga soon. With the season coming to an end soon, head coach Ernesto Valverde is likely to sanction the sale of some of his players in order to make room for incoming ones.

Barcelona has a few top targets for the summer such as Antoine Griezmann and Hector Bellerin. On the other hand, some players from the Barcelona squad have not been able to live up to their expectations, for instance, Andre Gomes and Arda Turan.

Before the team can spend heavily in the summer, there are some players who are expected to leave Camp Nou. Once the price is right, they may possibly be packing their bags this summer.

The central-midfielder made a move from Valencia to Camp Nou in 2016 but he has reportedly told the La Liga club that he desires a move away in the summer. Gomes has failed to impress during his time with Barcelona amidst interest from Manchester United and Juventus.

Over the two years with Barcelona, Gomes has played in multiple positions across the midfield and on one occasion, he even played as a right-back for his team.

His most accustomed position playing as a box-to-box midfielder, where he can transition from defence to attack easily. However, his ball recoveries, creativity and shots have been far from impressive for the Barcelona fans.

Barcelona may be tempted to sell Gomes, who has not performed well, in order to get other players this summer.
