Arsenal’s Nacho Monreal and Liverpool’s Alberto Moreno are reportedly under consideration by the La Liga outfit Barcelona as the Spanish giants seek a back-up left-back to Jordi Alba.

French star Lucas Digne’s summer move to the Premier League side Everton has left Barcelona short of variants at left full-back, and the Catalan giants are believed to be interested in bringing in another player in that area of the field.

According to the Spanish nationwide daily sports newspaper  Mundo Deportivo, Blaugrana have identified Arsenal’s Nacho and Liverpool’s Alberto as potential options as they face uncertain futures at Gunners and Reds respectively.

Monreal will see his current Gunners deal expire at the end of this campaign, while Moreno has fallen out of favour at the Reds, and both are said to be open to returning to La Liga this summer.

Alberto’s contract at the Reds will also expire next summer, meaning that Ernesto Valverde’s side would be free to approach either player at the start of 2019.

This season, former Malaga player made 3 Premier League appearances for the north London giants and netted 1 goal.
