Barcelona are on the verge of signing Valencia captain Paco Alcacer, as it has been recently reported. The La Liga champions have been the most active club in the current transfer market this season they have bolstered their defence and midfield, but are still keen to landing an attacker at the Nou Camp before the window closes. Alcacer becomes the latest player to be linked to the Catalan side for a few weeks now.

Many sites and media outlets have stated that a potential 5 year contract has been offered to the young Spanish striker by the Blaugrana and that a deal is now on the cards.

Paco played 34 times for Valencia last season and was involved in 19 goals, netting 13 times with 6 assists to his name as well, which has impressed one and all.

Alcacer believes that he can achieve more success at Barca despite knowing that the competition he will face for his position will be quite stiff. He was the top scorer for Spain in the 2016 EURO Cup qualifying rounds with a tally of 5 goals to his name, but couldn't make it to the final squad of La Roja.

Alacacer joined the Spanish side back in 2005 and has since then played at every age level of the club, although he will be the fourth attacking option for Luis Enrique. An announcement is most likely to be made after Barcelona Super Cup clash against Sevilla and it will be interesting to see what happens next in this transfer saga, which is all over the news.
