According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are open to selling Nelson Semedo and are willing to listen to offers for the Portuguese star.

The Portuguese full-back has never lived up to his full potential since his switch to Camp Nou despite playing 100 matches for the Catalan club.

Atletico Madrid were indeed interested in the former Benfica man last summer, but the Blaugrana eventually brushed off the interests.

The 24-year-old was vastly used as a second fiddle to Sergi Roberto last season by Ernesto Valverde.

It is also reported that Barca are willing to sell Moussa Wague, their third-choice full-back who has made only one appearance this season.

The defending La Liga champions are also looking to offload Arturo Vidal, who has been strongly linked with Serie A giants Inter Milan. Ivan Rakitic was also said to be a transfer interest of Antonio Conte.

Barca are currently leading the La Liga table after their 0-0 draw against their arch-rivals Real Madrid on Wednesday.
