From almost being forced out of the club to becoming a mainstay in the starting lineup, Frenkie de Jong has overseen a stunning turnaround of fortunes at Barcelona this term.

While the 25-year-old’s talent and quality have never been in question, circumstances were such that the Catalans were forced to try selling him to generate cash flow.

But De Jong held firm and refused to leave the club in the summer despite there being an agreement between Barcelona and Manchester United.

Now, the Netherlands international is viewed as one of the top players at the club and is seeing his influence in the side grow day by day.

Amidst this, SPORT is reporting that the midfielder is a target for several Premier League clubs ahead of the summer transfer window.

Indeed, it is being claimed that a number of clubs from England have asked about the Netherlands international with an intention to sign him up before the next campaign.

Manchester United, for one, remain keenly interested in De Jong, with manager Erik ten Hag still hoping to convince his compatriot to join him at Old Trafford.

But Barcelona are uninterested in listening to any offers for their midfield superstar. The Catalans see him as an untouchable in the team and will not consider selling him.

De Jong, for his part, has always maintained that he wishes to succeed at Barcelona. And now that things are looking up for him and the club, it seems highly unlikely that he would consider leaving Camp Nou
