Chelsea have been rated as the clear favourites to sign Barcelona right-back Jordi Alba.

Antonio Conte’s side are on the hunt for a new left-back as they are eyeing to strengthen defensive options following their return to Champions League football and Jordi Alba would be an ideal signing for the Blues.

According to figures from Sky Bet, Antonio Conte’s side are 8/1 favourites to tempt Alba away from Nou Camp, with Man City at 12/1 while Manchester United are an unlikely third option at 20/1.

Although, Alba’s preferred option at the moment appears to be to remain at Nou Camp, with Sky Bet offering 1/10 odds on him being the Catalans Player for the next season.

However, following Barcelona’s interest in Chelsea duo Cesar Azpilicuetta and Marcos Alonso could help Antonio Contee to lure Spain international full-back at Stamford Bridge next season.

Meanwhile, another Barcelona player who has been linked with Chelsea move Arda Turan is expected to leave the Catalan giants when the summer transfer window will be re-opened.

Jordi Alba and Turan have both been top class players and signing them could help Conte to dominate on both European and domestic tournaments.
