Luis Filipe's representatives are urging Deportivo La Coruna president Augusto Cesar Lendoiro to drop his asking price for the wing-back.

Barcelona president Joan Laporta hit out at Lendoiro this week over his valuation of the Brazilian and warned they were ready look elsewhere.

L'ideal Gallego says Filipe is desperate to see the move happen and is pleading with Lendoiro to drop his demands.

Meanwhile, Osasuna fullback Nacho Monreal is being lined up by Depor as a potential replacement for Filipe.
