With Griezmann deal hanging in balance, Barcelona look at other prospects
FC Barcelona Transfer News this summer has largely centred around the possible arrival of Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid. However, if FC Barcelona Latest Transfer News is to be believed there is another player Barcelona are monitoring and would like to sign as early as next week. We are talking about Ajax sensation Frenkie de Jong, who has lit up the Eredivisie over the past 2 seasons.
According to Spanish newspaper AS, Barcelona are believed to working on an offer in the region of €30-40m and will be sitting down with the club and players representative as early as next week. With Real Madrid working extremely hard this summer to revamp their squad for next season, it is imperative for Barcelona to make a move of their own, especially after losing out on Brazilian Rodrygo, who is expected to sign on the dotted line for Madrid any time.
Frenkie being monitored closely by a host of Premier League clubs too

At 21, Frenkie is just starting out in his career and joining a club like Barcelona will be hugely beneficial to his development as he learns from the best in the business.
Frenkie graduated from Willem II youth academy, before Ajax snapped him up in 2015, from where he has gone on to make 37 first team appearances for the Dutch club.
