Barcelona have reportedly received an offer from Granada for midfielder Carles Alena and are currently thinking it over.

According to Catalunya Radio, Granada have made an offer “based on variables” that would also include a percentage of any future sale.

Alena is out of contract in 2022 and spent the second half of last season on loan at Getafe where he made 22 appearances in La Liga.

Barca plan to study the offer carefully because they are also aware of interest in the young midfielder from Valencia, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The 23-year-old is one of the players that could potentially be used in a deal to bring left-back Jose Luis Gaya to the Camp Nou.

Barca have been linked with Gaya for a while but any transfer is likely to need players included in the deal.

Valencia are said to like both Alena and Martin Braithwaite who has also been linked with a summer exit following the arrival of attackers Memphis Depay and Sergio Aguero.

Yet any decision on Braithwaite’s future may have to wait until Denmark’s involvement in Euro 2020 is over. The Danes will play Czech Republic in the quarter-finals on Saturday.
