It’s been reported that Barcelona have proposed a swap deal that could involve Ivorian midfielder Franck Kessie signing for Inter Milan, as the 26-year-old struggles to make the grade in Catalonia.

Kessie joined Barcelona from AC Milan on a free transfer back in July 2022 and has since found regular game time hard to come by.

Now though, Sky Sports Italy have reported that Barcelona and Inter Milan are discussing a swap deal that would see Kessie return to Serie A football, with Marcelo Brozovic heading in the opposite direction.

The African midfielder has made just eight LaLiga appearances this season, while Brozovic looks to work his way back to full fitness after picking up an injury during the 2022 FIFA World cup,

Last year, Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez spoke of the African midfielder’s importance to the team, however, it appears that the club could look to offload the former Milan star after just six months.
