Let's take a look at today's Barcelona transfer news and rumours of the day:
#1 Everton deny interest in Barca player
Everton boss Marco Silva has denied that his club are interested in signing Barcelona winger Malcom. We had reported in 3rd January's transfer roundup that Everton and Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande were interested in the former Bordeaux attacker, but Silva has revealed that his side haven't had discussions with Barcelona regarding Malcom's transfer.
On being asked if there is some interest to sign Malcom, Silva said: "No, no. Nothing."
The Everton boss also spoke about the players that may leave Everton by the end of this transfer window: "I understand the moment. Now is the moment these rumours come to the table. But [there is] nothing new. We don't put more to be loaned or whatever. I want them focused on our squad and to be ready to play. Until now, the decisions I already take, you know what they are. Even, like you know, the last moments were really busy for us. The time we had between [games] was to prepare for the next.”
