Borussia Monchengladbacker Remi Bensbaini’s Algerian side will be in the short paper of FC Barcelona, who are still looking for a left-back for Jordi Alba.
The search for the team continues in Catalonia. After Alex Grimaldo, Borna Sosa or even Nicolas Tagliafico, there is now Remi Bensbaini who has been tipped to potentially fill Barca’s ranks. The game indicates that Catalan representatives have already offered to acquire the services of the Algerian international (46 caps).
The former Renais, whose contract expires in June 2023, may have already informed his leaders that he intends to change the wind this summer. For their part, Xavi’s team is looking for a new left-back to anticipate the end of Jordi Alba’s contract in June 2024.
Borussia Dortmund will have a good start
However, Joan Laporta’s club is not alone in this matter. According to German media Sport1, Borussia Dortmund have already expressed interest in Fennec. The current Bundesliga Dolphins will also have a start on file as the club has learned of the expected price by Gladbach (20 million euros) for the 26-year-old side.
Nothing is lost for Barcelona who can rely on other resources to tempt Bensbaini. For a week exclusively, behind the scenes, the Algerian has shared the same representation agency as Frankie de Jong and Martin Braithwaite (HCM Sports Management).
The versatile defender settled in North Rhine-Westphalia in the summer of 2019 for 8 million euros. Since then, the Constantine native has done well, scoring 17 goals in 78 games, including a 5-0 win over Mönchengladbach against Bayern Munich in October 2021.
