In January, Ronald Koeman called on his Barcelona bosses to seal a double Premier League sweep for Guinea Vignald and Eric Garcia.
Koman wanted to take Liverpool midfielder Vijnalda and Manchester City defender Garcia to the Camp Camp over the summer.
But Barസa, who paid to lure the club into selling, could not come up with the money.
Now Common wants the pair in January – and continues to target Lyon’s former Manchester United striker Memphis DePay.
All three players are out of contract next year and the Barcelona coach is hoping his club can raise enough money to seal all three deals.
Koman confirmed: “Our interest in Vignaldam is strong.
“I wanted to bring him here in the summer because he has the ability to score great runs from midfield and get into the box at the right moments.
“I’m sure he can add something to the team. But Barcelona’s financial situation became known to his club. ”
Koeman added: “We have a chance to make sure we go on another trip to Garcia.
“But I do not know how the club will fare in January, so I will have to wait and see.”

United still have an option to buy back Depay, but the Dutchman was willing to sign a contract with Barcelona to sign the final transfer window.
Koman said: “Everything was ready, but because of La Liga rules we knew we had to sell first before signing on to our targets.
“It simply came to our notice then. It was disappointing, but Memphis knew what the situation was like at Barcelona. ”
Depay has scored 58 goals in 144 appearances for Lyon since transferring United from $ 16 million in January 2017.
