Jordi Alba consults Chelsea's Spanish star over possible move

  Jordi Alba consults Chelsea's Spanish star over possible move Barcelona defender Jordi Alba has consulted former team-mates Cesc Fabregas and Pedro about life at Stamford Bridge. Amid reports about his future at the Camp Nou, AS claim Alba is thought to be considering his options as he weighs up a possible move to the Premier League. It is being reported that where Alba plays his football next season will largely depend on who takes over at Barcelona. Manchester United and Chelsea have both been earmarked as possible destinations for the marauding defender, who has also reportedly spoken to United’s Spanish players. The report suggests that the defender believes the club have lost confidence in him as he slowly falls down the pecking order at Barcelona, who have also recently switched to a variation of the 3-4-3. Luis Enrique has played the formation without wing backs, utilising Spanish midfielder, Andres Iniesta in a wide position. The defender in under contract until 2020 with the Catalan club and has suffered from injuries this season, limiting his game time.

Arsenal are lining up a move for Barcelona outcast Bojan Krkic, according to reports in Spain. The 23-year-old was hailed as a star of the future when he was coming through the ranks at Barca, where his goal-scoring exploits for the youth team set him out as one to watch.

Spanish giants FC Barcelona are ready to offload Turkish midfielder Arda Turan to Arsenal for a transfer fee in the region of €30 million, according to CNN Turk.

The 30-year-old has yet to secure a starting spot in his second season at the Catalan club, so it would be no surprise if he decided to leave as his role in the squad is unlikely to change.

It is not as if Turan was only given a rotational role in the squad because of bad performances as he has actually performed well in the games he has featured in, scoring 12 goals and providing four assists in 34 appearances with three of those goals coming from a 4-0 victory over Borussia Moenchengladbach in the Champions League.

However, the creative midfielder may find grabbing a consistent starting spot just a bit easier at Arsenal, who are currently seven points adrift of a Champions League spot, sitting in 6th place in the Premier League.

The North London club look likely to miss out on the Champions League next season with seven points looking a gap too large to cover with only seven games left to play this season and the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, and Liverpool sitting ahead of them in the table.
