Barcelona coach Koeman seems to be convinced in Firpo abilities

Ronald Koeman 'doesn't want' Junior Firpo to leave, Diario Sport understand.

However, if a hefty offer comes, the club will be ready to part ways with the left-back, it is said.

In the summer, the 24-year-old was linked with Inter Milan and Napoli.

Firpo aside, Barca B gem Sergio Akieme could serve as a back-up option for Jordi Alba.

Unlike Alba, Firpo is foul-prone (2.1 fouls per game in 2019/20 La Liga, Alba 0.7), yet Junior is better at tackling (1.4 tackles per game, Alba 0.7); Jordi Alba averages slightly more interceptions and clearances, as per WhoScored. Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
