Lorient full back Raphael Guerreiro is prioritising a move to Barcelona over Arsenal, reports Spanish media outlet Sport.es.

The left back has caught the eye of a number of European sides with a series of impressive performances for the French side.

There are suitors in the Premier League, with Arsenal and Liverpool having been credited with an interest in the past.

They are not the only ones keen on his signature though, with La Liga champions Barcelona also considering a move for his signature.

The Catalans view him as very similar to their current left back Jordi Alba and believe he could be the perfect long-term replacement for the Spanish star.

Indeed, Luis Enrique’s side are considering the sale of Adriano this summer, and could look to secure Guerreiro as his replacement in the squad.

And according to Sport, he is just as enamoured by the idea of playing for Barcelona should an offer come in.

He believes their playing style would best suit his, and is prioritising a move to the Nou Camp ahead of the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund.
