FC Barcelona continues to work on a transfer market that seems complex. Ronald Koeman made it clear that he has a list of his priorities for this month of January, with several players designated to leave and also other proper names that could arrive. In the first group appears Junior Firpo, which could leave the left side lame if he leaves.
Several teams are interested in taking over the services of the Dominican Hispanic. Inter Milan is the one that has sounded louder, although it has also been linked to English West Ham. The full-back has a good poster in the Premier League and several doors open for his future, but at the moment there is nothing concrete.

Barcelona’s substitute for Junior
The fact is that the club is in a delicate economic situation and, in the event that its departure is confirmed, it is not clear that anyone will arrive in its place. In fact, the diary Sports world ensures that Barcelona believe that the best thing would be not to sign if Junior leaves. His substitute would be in the quarry and all eyes point to Alejando Balde, a left-handed side who is barely 17 years old and already has the poster of a young promise in the subsidiary.
It would be a risky bet, of course, because every absence of Jordi Alba could mean a serious setback for Koeman, but Barcelona is willing to think about the subsidiary. In any case, the same source ensures that also the second option to achieve a transfer would be handled, but the operation could be complex due to the lack of liquidity. In addition, it would be necessary to find a guaranteed player in a complex situation at his club, as he would arrive at the Camp Nou to be a substitute, so everything points to the quarry.
