Barcelona may have brought in Neto, Frenkie de Jong and Antoine Griezmann this summer but their lack of left-back options remains an issue.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona have renewed their interest in Real Betis’ full-back Junior Firpo, as they aim to bring in competition for Jordi Alba next season.

Betis were originally asking for over €30 million for the 22-year-old, which seemed to put Barcelona off, but it seems that things may have changed a little bit as the summer has progressed.

The 22-year-old is still seen as the best option for Barcelona, and the Spanish champions may be willing to include Juan Miranda in the deal.

The report reckons that Betis may be willing to accept a deal that involves the 19-year-old, although there are other clubs interested in the teenager too.
