FC Barcelona keep surprising with the names they are being linked to in the transfer market. This window has already been strange with the arrivals of Jeison Murillo and Kevin-Prince Boateng, and now it's Stefano Sensi's turn, another Sassuolo player.
Both KPB and Murillo have good La Liga experience and time at important clubs, something which Sensi does not, although it doesn't seem like that will stop him arriving in the summer.
Mediaset say that negotiations between the Italian side and Barca are scheduled. Barca have spoken to the player's people and are following him closely. They say that they are waiting for Valverde to OK the signing.
The 23-year-old midfielder has a contract until 2020 and has also been linked with AC Milan.
