Real Betis forward Loren Moron has admitted he’s pretty happy to hear that Barcelona are interested in bringing him to the Camp Nou.

The striker was linked with a move to Barca in the January transfer window, and those rumors have resurfaced again following news Ousmane Dembele’s season may be over.

Barca could be allowed to bring in a new player if Dembele is ruled out for five months or more, and Moron sounds like he may not take much convincing to make the move.

“Yes, I’m aware [of Barcelona’s interest]. I will not hide that it is a great joy that one of the best teams is interested in you, or at least you are linked with them.

”But I am very focused on what I have here, on what I want to continue doing here, and everything will sort itself out in the future.

”I know that they can sign due to Dembele’s injury, but that’s up to my agent; I don’t want to get involved too much. I’m thinking about the game on Sunday, which is going to be very colourful. For us, it’s a final. Barcelona are the best team in the world and they have the best player.”

Moron has 10 goals for Real Betis this season in all competitions but convincing Betis to sell may be difficult. He’s also said to have a release clause of €60 million which could prove problematic.
