Barcelona have identified Lazio midfielder Luis Alberto as a possible signing during the summer transfer window.
With the expected departure of Andres Iniesta from Camp Nou, boss Ernesto Valverde must start to look for replacements in the middle of the park and it seems that Barcelona may attempt to secure a reunion with a former player.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Catalan giants have been impressed with Luis Alberto’s season at the Stadio Olimpico, with the player contributing nine goals with 11 assists in 31 outings in Italy’s top flight.
Alberto spent the 2012-13 campaign with Barcelona’s ‘B’ team but since then, the player has endured unsuccessful spells at both Liverpool and Malaga.
The 25-year-old – who still has over four years left on his contract – would supposedly cost in the region of £26m.
