Barcelona target Villarreal left-back as Alba’s assist

Browse By

Villarreal left-back Alfonso Pedraza, 25, has been a target for Barcelona. ​Who are keen to add a player to the defensive line on loan.

Spanish correspondent Gerard Romero reported on Tuesday that Barcelona are eyeing Alfonso Pedraza for Villarreal’s 25-year-old left-back. With a loan contract for the rest of this season 

Barcelona have Jordi Alba as their first choice at left-back. But the 32-year-old’s performance has dropped dramatically in recent years. So Xavi Hernandez has plans to find a replacement for Alba. With left-back Jose Luis Gaia as captain. Team Valencia is the top target. But Azul Grana have financial problems so they can only borrow players to use them. That caused the Catalan giants to look for other ufabet targets.

According to Gerard Romero, Barcelona are interested in signing Pedraza from Villarreal on loan in January. The 25-year-old left-back has impressed for the Blues with four assists in 21 appearances this season. But it is unclear whether Unai Emery’s team will stand ready to let the players move under or not.

Villarreal’s stance over loaning out Pedraza to Barcelona also remains unclear, although it might be fair to presume that the Yellow Submarine could be hesitant in sending the 25-year-old to a La Liga rival in the middle of a season. For now, Pedraza has emerged on Barcelona’s radar over a possible January loan move, and it will be interesting to see if he arrives at Camp Nou this month.
