Ivan Rakitic is expected to leave Barcelona in January, with Juventus and Inter the clubs most interested, claim two Spanish papers.
Both Mundo Deportivo and Sport claim the 31-year-old Croatia international is eager to move on after being pushed down the pecking order by Frenkie de Jong.
He has made only one start this season and five substitute appearances.
Rakitic is under contract until June 2021, so selling him next summer could force Barcelona to accept a bargain price.
This would all make a January transfer a better idea for the Blaugrana, and Serie A would be a good option for him, with Juventus and Inter both eager to snap him up.
The price-tag for a mid-season sale is expected to be in the region of €40m.
