Real Betis want Paco Alcacer

Quique Setien’s been writing a little shopping list for Real Betis and Paco Alcacer’s name is somewhere near the top.

However, the Betis boss has not decided if he will try for a loan or a permanent move, so say Sport.

As for Paco, we’ll he’s off sunning himself on a beach somewhere at the moment. He’s actually planning on staying at Barca but if the club say it’s time to go, he’ll move on.

Barcelona close to Lenglet

Staying with Sport and they also reckon that a deal for Clement Lenglet is moving closer and closer.

Sevilla want to keep hold of the defender but Barcelona are willing to pay a little more than €30m to bring him in and hope to do a deal in June.

Marlon Santos wanted by West Ham

Over at Mundo Deportivo they’ve been talking about Marlon Santos (remember him?). He’s in the middle of a two-year loan at Nice but could be heading to the Premier League.

Apparently West Ham United have taken quite a shine to the centre-back and Barcelona are keen to cash in on the 22-year-old.

Spalletti says Inter can’t afford Rafinha right now

Rafinha’s been having a lovely time at Inter Milan since joining in January and even helped the club secure a place in the Champions League.

However, despite the finances the competition brings manager Luciano Spalletti reckons the club still can’t afford to sign Rafinha permanently.

According to Goal, he said: “At the moment, Inter don’t have the chance to pay Valencia and Barcelona to buy Cancelo and Rafinha.”

Alaba to Barcelona rumors return

Those David Alaba to Barcelona rumours are back with a vengeance. Kicker reckon Barcelona still want the Bayern Munich man and like his versatility.

Mind you last week Alaba’s dad said “Everyone already knows of Madrid’s interest, it’s no secret.” I don’t know if that’s true, but it’s certainly not a secret anymore.

Barcelona offer €30m for Rodrygo

Barcelona are continuing to show interest in Santos starlet Rodryo even though the club have said they have no meetings planned with the Spanish champions.

However, according to UOL Esporte that might not be exactly true as Pep Segura is in Brazil and has made an offer to Santos president Jose Carlos Peres.

Abel Ruiz to sign new deal

And finally today we end with news that Abel Ruiz is set to sign a new deal with Barcelona.

Mundo Deportivo reckon he’s changed agents and now only needs to sign on the dotted line to make it all official.

The youngster will sign on for three more seasons, plus the option of two more.
