Alcacer close to Barca move
Barcelona are on the verge of completing a reported 30 million euro move for Spain international Paco Alcacer from Valencia after the striker arrived for a medical with the La Liga champions on Monday.
The Spaniard was excluded from the Valencia squad that lost 1-0 at Eibar on Saturday, with coach Pako Ayesteran telling reporters, "Today he was not in the ideal situation to compete."
According to Barcelona-based newspaper Mundo Deportivo, Alcacer will sign a five-year contract later on Monday before reporting for international duty with Spain at their Las Rozas training camp in Madrid.
Alcacer will be unveiled by the club at a news conference when he returns to Barcelona after Spain open their 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign against Liechtenstein on September 5.
