Paco Alcacer addressing future after several clubs make contactApril 3, 2018
Barcelona forward Paco Alcacer is weighing up several offers from other clubs in La Liga, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The Spanish striker has been a bit part player for the Catalan club this season, but his impressive performances when given a chance by Barca boss Ernesto Valverde has seen him gain interest from a number of clubs.
Alcacer is said to be happy at the Camp Nou, despite a lack of game time – but offers from around La Liga have now seen the former Valencia striker debate his future.
Celta Vigo and Villarreal are said to be at the forefront of that list of interested clubs – with both said to be making plans for next season already.
Celta boss Juan Carlos Unzue is now stranger to Alcacer, having worked with him during his time as assistant manager to Luis Enrique at Barca, whilst Villarreal’s loss of Cedric Bakambu in January to the Chinese Super League and questionable future of Carlos Bacca – leaves them looking at the striker.
Alcacer’s limited game time this season has been largely down to the form of Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi, whilst Barca new-boys Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele have been given chances.
Alcacer, however, has scored a goal ever 143 minutes, bettering Suarez’s average of 144 minutes.
