Philippe Coutinho was the subject of the January transfer window last year, but it is already rumored to be in motion again after his life in Barcelona moved south.
The Brazilian star has not yet fully integrated into the Camp Nou and, despite Barca's 6-1 victory over Sevilla last night, he has not committed himself to the future.
"No one knows what will happen in the future," he told beIN Sports after the match.
"All I have in mind now is to work hard."
Liverpool sold Coutinho to Barca for 142 million pounds a year ago, mostly using that income to finance a summer change for goalkeeper Alisson Becker.
With Barca struggling to integrate Coutinho, Malcom and Ousmane Dembele, it's clear that not everyone can leave now.
But it is equally clear that Barcelona's recruiting policy has not been very good if there are so many contractors struggling to fit in and be bought on the market so soon.

MANCHESTER CITY SIGNED UP HAJDUK SPLIT WORD !! (With the midfielder returning immediately to the Croatian side on loan)
He's so niche that it's literally impossible to find photos of him, rather like a football manager, so here's a picture of Arty-farty's Etihad instead.
Nice. The 18-year-old completed a medical appointment in Manchester this week and moved to a rate of £ 7 million.
Hajduk has announced that Palaversa will return to them on loan until the end of the 2019-20 season, although City can join him in January.
Croatia's U19 international is happy to stay with his childhood club before joining "one of the biggest clubs in the world."
"Thanks to Manchester City for the confidence," he told Hajduk's website.
"There is still a lot of work to do, but I have not shown all I can and I hope to play for Hajduk to justify the great confidence I have received from the English champions."
