It has become increasingly clear that Jordi Alba is running out of time, age is catching up with the veteran and Barcelona must look for an alternative. Therefore, Barcelona are going all out for Gaya to strengthen left back position.
Gaya is seen as an improved version of Jordi by the Barcelona technical department.
Technical secretary, Mathieu Allemany has worked alongside Gaya at Valencia and that could prove to be the key to securing the deal.
Gaya is valued at around €40million by transfermarket and his current expires in 2023.
