Ernesto Valverde made it clear this week that Barcelona still may want to bring a left-back on board before the season begins. The Barcelona manager discussed the matter in his pre-match presser on Friday.

“It is possible that we bring someone on,” he said.

”It’s true that in that position we had problems last season.

”We are open to signing players until the end of the market.”

Junior Firpo has been the name that has floated around as a left-back recruit that could fill Barcelona’s need for depth. Jordi Alba isn’t getting any younger and they need depth at the position since they usually go so deep into multiple tournaments.
