FC Barcelona's desire to move on the unwanted members of their squads is gathering pace now. Arthur has already joined Juventus but he is going to be joined in Italy by Junior Firpo.

The left-back has a growing list of admirers in the Serie A who have informed Barça of their desire to complete a move. The three interested teams are Napoli, Inter Milan and Torino. The final decision will be made by Junior.

What needs to be decided is whether Junior will leave on loan with an option to buy or on a permanent deal. Barça would prefer to raise cash in order to fund a move for a new left-back of their own.

Gaya is the chosen one

The priority for Barça is Jose Luis Gaya. Although the club have been linked with a move for Angeliño (Manchester City) the only option on the table right now is the one for the Valencia full-back. The LaLiga rivals have financial issues of their own but Gaya is someone they'd rather keep hold of.

Parejo and Coquelin have already left the Mestalla for Villarreal after the club failed to secure European football for next season. Barça could help ease Valencia's financial worries by making a significant offer for Gaya.
