West Ham, Southampton targeting Barcelona fullback Junior Firpo

Barcelona fullback Junior Firpo is attracting major Premier League interest.

Sport says West Ham and Southampton are 'close' to sealing a deal for £14million-rated Barcelona defender Firpo this summer.

Firpo, 24, moved to the Nou Camp from Real Betis in 2019 but has largely struggled for first-team action, and his club are believed to be open to offloading him in the upcoming window.

Barcelona are 'confident' of being able to sell Firpo - and that the two Premier League sides have been in talks over the full back for a number of days now.

Barcelona are in dire financial straits and need to axe a number of players, and Firpo may be one of the first to be shown the exit door.
