Real Betis are confident their good relationship with Barcelona will see them land more players from the Catalan club next season, be that on loan or a permanent deal.
Betis, who currently have Carles Aleña on loan, are keeping an eye on events at Barça with the hope of landing some of the club's young stars this summer.
Rubi's side have asked for another season-long loan for Aleña, while a more complicated deal is one to bring back left-back Junior Firpo, who moved to Camp Nou for 18 million euros last year. The Spain U21 international is likely to enter in a deal for Inter striker Lautaro Martinez.
In addition, Betis wanted a loan with an option to buy and Barça are looking for cash now.
Rubi has also shown an interest in Riqui Puig. The Barça B midfielder has outgrown the third tier of Spanish football but doesn't get enough minutes with the first team. He has asked the Betis board to make an effort to bring him to Seville on loan.
But there's more. In a more informal manner, Betis have also asked about Ansu Fati, Pedri and Francisco Trincao. Ansu should have a place in Barça's first team, but there's more uncertainty around Pedri and Trincao. Decisions will be made after preseason.
Finally, Alex Collado, the Barça B attacking midfielder, is also drawing interest from LaLiga clubs. Betis know that other clubs, such as Celta Vigo and Villarreal, are better positioned at the moment.
