FC Barcelona are reportedly willing to listen to offers for one of their underperforming stars in the January transfer window.

Raphinha’s name is reportedly on the chopping block at the Catalan giants after some of his erratic displays this campaign.

The 27-year-old has registered three goals and five assists in 15 appearances, but remains one of the club’s biggest threats although he is not consistent enough.

According to Sport, the Spanish champions are considering listening to offers for the Brazil international, who is said to have attracted a lot of interest.

Raphinha’s performance of late have seemed to frustrate coach Xavi Hernandez who is reportedly starting to lose patience with the player.

The Catalan giants apparently turned down offers from Saudi Arabia and the Premeir League before the season got underway.

The report now adds that Newcastle United remain interested in the winger and with the Spanish club still struggling financially, they might find it hard to turn down a big offer.

Raphinha joined Barcelona from Leeds United last season in a deal reportedly worth €58million and he managed to help the club win the LaLiga title.
