Barcelona have enquired about signing Tottenham pair Tanguy Ndombele and Ryan Sessegnon in part-exchange deals.
The cash-strapped Spanish giants are willing to offer both players a route out of Spurs but only if the Premier League club are prepared to accept players plus cash.
Spurs manager Jose Mourinho is understood to have personally blocked Barca's approach for Sessegnon, whose situation is being monitored by a host of other English and European clubs.
Spurs are also unwilling to discuss a move for record-signing Ndombele at present, despite Mourinho's doubts about the Frenchman.
The pair cost a combined £80million last summer but both will consider their futures at the end of the season if they fear another campaign on the fringes.
Ndombele has played just 19 minutes since the restart - although he could start tomorrow's trip to struggling Bournemouth - while Sessegnon was left out of Mourinho's 20-man squad for the past two matches, despite being fully fit.
Mourinho is understood to see Sessegnon as a full-back long-term and has compared him to Ashley Cole, but the Portuguese named untried 18-year-old left-back Dennis Cirkin on the bench ahead of the £25m signing for Monday's win over Everton.
Sessegnon, who last featured in Spurs' final game before the lockdown, is said to be frustrated and puzzled by the situation, particularly as Mourinho wanted to sign him from Fulham while in charge of Manchester United.
