At 21 years old and 19 years old the Dutch pair are considered to be some of the best in their respective positions for the future.

The pair are expected to cost in the region of £115million.

De Jong and De Ligt

Both De Jong and De Ligt have impressed for the Netherlands despite being in the UEFA Nations League group of death alongside France and Germany.

Both men are beginning to establish themselves at senior level for the Dutch National team and Barcelona should bite the bullet before the price-tag rises for the talented duo.

In some worrying news for Liverpool fans Don Balon also reported that the third target for Barcelona is none other than frontman Roberto Firmino.

Could the chance to play alongside some of the greats at the Camp Nou be too good an opportunity to turn down for Firmino?

Barcelona are actively looking for a replacement for Luis Suarez, who is now 31-years-old. Firmino would certainly add the energy that Barcelona are looking for up top and the Brazilian is expected to cost in the region of £70million.

Firmino may see a reunion with compatriot Philipe Coutinho and the chance to play with Messi before he retires as an opportunity to good to turn down.
