Barcelona are closing to sign 30 million rated left-back

Spanish champions FC Barcelona are closing in on acquiring the services of the Real Betis left-back Junior Firpo, according to Sport.

The La Liga giants are in the market to sign a backup for veteran full-back Jordi Alba who has recently turned 30 and have identified the 22-year-old as a perfect fit.

Therefore, the Catalonia-based club have made an offer of €27 million for the player which is very close to Betis’ valuation of €30 million for their star defender.
