Barcelona are unhappy with two of their first-teamers over their refusal to listen to offers.
The Blaugrana have recently confirmed the signing of Manchester City captain Ilkay Gundogan on a free transfer and are also expected to snap up Inigo Martinez from Athletic Bilbao.
However, the La Liga winners still need to balance the books in order to make further additions and are looking to get rid of a number of players this summer.
But according to AS, two players have frustrated the club by showing no willingness to entertain any potential opportunities to move on.
Midfielder Franck Kessie has been open to leaving the Catalan outfit and "understanding of the club's needs" but the same cannot be said for both Ferran Torres and Ansu Fati.
Torres signed a contract until 2027 when he joined from Manchester City but €60 million of his transfer fee is still yet to be paid off and so Barca will only really benefit in terms of wages if they are able to offload him.
However, despite not being seen as a regular starter, Torres still wants to stay put. The same can be said by Fati, who was initially seen as the next big thing at the Nou Camp before injuries and a loss of form hindering his progress.
Still only 20, Wolves have been interested in signing the Spain international but he does not wish to make the switch to Molineux and he too would prefer to remain at Barca.
AS claims that the club have been left "very disappointed by the attitude of both players".
Another report states that Barca have four priority departures they are trying to accelerate before July rolls around.
And they all involve players who were on loan in the 2022/23 season, with Clement Lenglet, Samuel Umtiti, Sergino Dest and Alex Collado all surplus to requirements going into next season.
