Barca’s Alcacer prefers Betis move

Barcelona striker Paco Alcacer has interest from FC Porto and Borussia Dortmund but would prefer to join Real Betis, say reports in Spain.

El Mundo Deportivo say all three clubs have made enquiries over a loan move for the out-of-favour striker, who was left out of Barca’s matchday squad for the clash with Alaves on Saturday.

The 24-year-old joined the Catalan giants on a five-year contract from Valencia in 2016 in a €30m deal but has struggled for game time since, scoring 15 times in 50 appearances.

The striker, who has netted six goals in 13 caps for his nation, has also been linked with Valencia and Watford this summer, and looks certain to exit the Camp Nou before the transfer window closes for Spanish clubs on 31 August.
