FC Barcelona is once again thinking about José Luis Gayà. Several reports point to the Valencia left-back possibly joining next summer, after Barcelona sell Junior Firpo. He would compete with Jordi Alba, another former Valencia player, for the starting position, if he were to sign.

Gayà has been linked with a move to either Barcelona or Real Madrid for a very long time, but it’s never quite come to pass.

A Spanish international, the 25 year old is considered to be both young and with lots of quality. For a rumored 15 million euros plus bonuses, he could potentially be quite a good deal.

Of course that first depends on actually getting a good deal for Firpo first, as Barcelona are not exactly flush with cash at the moment.

Alfonso Pedraza, the 24-year-old Valencia fullback, is considered a backup option. He spent last season on loan to Real Betis and is having a good term this time around. He is a former Spanish youth international, who came through Villarreal’s academy.

Angeliño is also considered an option, but he could be harder to land as he plays for Manchester City, and the English club don’t necessarily need to sell. He’s another 24-year-old former Spanish youth international. He was signed as a youth player from Deportivo La Coruña. He has bounced around on loan many places but is making a name for himself with RB Leipzig,
