Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona have reopened talks for Real Betis defender Junior Firpo according to the latest media reports in Spain.
The Catalan giants want to sign a left-back competition for first choice Jordi Alba.
According to Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo, the five-time European champions have reopened talks for Junior Firpo who’s rated at around €30m.
The Real Betis left-back has also been linked with Champions League holders Liverpool.
The Reds are in the market for a left-back replacement for Alberto Moreno who left the club this summer after his contract at Liverpool came to an end.
Alberto Moreno signed a five-year contract upon his transfer from Spanish La Liga club Sevilla in 2014 and that contract ended this summer.
The 26-year-old has since joined another Spanish outfit Villarreal this summer on a free transfer.
Junior Firpo had a very good season for Real Betis in the last campaign and his best game was against Barcelona.
He scored and also provided an assist as Barcelona stunned Real Betis 4-3 at the Nou Camp in one of their league meetings last season.
Junior Firpo was recently part of the Spanish u-21 team that won the European Championship in Italy and San Marino.
