Getafe prioitise deal for Barcelona midfielder Carles Alena

Getafe are prioitising a deal for Barcelona midfielder Carles Alena in January.

Marca says Getafe have made the youngster their No1 target for the winter market.

Alena will leave Barca in the New Year after recognising he has little chance of first team football this season under coach Ernesto Valverde.

Getafe will face stiff competition for his signature, with Celta Vigo and Tottenham also keen.

But the presence of former Barca B teammate Marc Cucurella could swing the deal in Getafe's favour. The pair are great friends from their time together at La Masia.
