Barcelona left-back Junior Firpo has been linked with a move away from the club this summer and the likes of West Ham United and Southampton have been linked with the player.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are keen on selling the 24-year-old defender this summer and the Hammers have submitted an offer for the player.
The report further states that Barcelona like the offer from the Premier League club. However, the details of the offer have not been mentioned.
West Ham currently have Aaron Cresswell as their starting left-back and Firpo could prove to be a quality alternative.
The 24-year-old has struggled to hold down a regular starting berth at the Spanish club and he will be determined to show his qualities if he joins a new club this summer.
His hunger and desire to do well could prove to be beneficial for the London club if they sign him.
Firpo has the talent to succeed at the highest level but he needs regular playing time and a fresh start. A move to West Ham could be exactly what he needs right now.
The Brazilian could compete with Cresswell for the starting spot next season and the competition for places will only help both players improve.
Cresswell is currently 31 and Firpo could eventually take over from him as the club’s first-choice left-back in the coming seasons.
Southampton could use someone like Firpo as well after losing Ryan Bertrand. However, the Hammers are likely to be a more attractive project for the player. They will be able to offer him European football as well.
