Barcelona have already starting preparing for next season, and attention has turned to the free transfer market for the summer of 2022, with a number of bargains to be had, few more impactful than Franck Kessie, who is in line to reinforce the Blaugrana's midfield.

Joan Laporta and the technical department hope to reinforce every one of the three areas on the pitch in the summer, with Erling Haaland still seen as a target for the attack, despite his astronomical price tag.

Kessie has excelled since arriving at AC Milan from Atalanta, but will likely leave the Stadio San Siro at the end of his contract on June 30.
