New Left-back solutions

Hi guys I am new here. So it is kind of weird for me to start in such a manner. Anyways,

The back-up option in thr left-back position has not been adequately filled since we allowed Lucas Digne to leave. Thomas Vermaelen, Sergi Roberto and Nelson Semedo have all been used there, but none have done enough to assure us in case of a injury to Jordi Alba.Here are my suggestions on who could possibly fill that void:

A NEW SIGNING: This is obviously required as a long-term plan as well, given that Miranda has shown that he is not ready (yet) to play for the first team. I personally prefer Mendy and Grimaldo as the top two options to pursue this summer

CLEMENT LENGLET: Much was said on Lenglet's ability to play as a make-shift Left-back. He would certainly bring a lot of defensive stability at the coat of attack though. This could work if Couts is deployed in the mid-field, as a short term solution.

SAMUEL UMTITI: This seems a bit crazy but titi did play in the left side of the three-man defence in Enrique's last year. Cons are the same as those of Lenglet.

RAFINHA: It is a pity that we may off-load Raf at the end of the season. He could work at lb as he has Barca DNA all over him and has played as a wing-back (on the right though) under Enrique . However, he is far too injury-prone to make a significant impact on the long run.

CARLES ALENA: This is something I personally don't want to see as it could lead to a Roberto like situation. He possesses traits similar to Rafinha, and might actually do well as a left-back

These are just my opinions and there is no reason for them to be tried, much less be a success.

Also look forward to being a part of the Barca Blaugranes family. Good-bye for now.
