Barcelona defender Junior Firpo has rejected a move to Serie A leaders AC Milan, with Gianluca di Marzio giving West Ham United a boost in their search for a better Camp Nou bench.

While Hammers fans may be a bit disappointed by the possible arrival of a man who has played just 147 minutes of La Liga this season, they should take a look at the last left-back who traded Barcelona for England.

And if Firpo can emulate the impressive impact Lucas Digne has had at Everton, the Spanish Under-21 international will only improve upon a West Ham side enjoying their best start to the season since 1985/86.

Barcelona are willing to sell a man who signed from Real Betis for £ 18 million almost two years ago.

And, according to reports from Italy, Firpo has opened the door to a possible move to the London Stadium by turning his back on AC Milan.

Perhaps after failing to topple Jordi Alba in Ronald Koeman’s starting XI, he was concerned that history would repeat itself for a Milan team that already boasts the burgeoning talent of Theo Hernández.

Short-term loan deals have been the order of the day this month, but according to ESPN, West Ham was willing to buy Firpo outright.

However, after another good showing from the rejuvenated Aaron Cresswell in Tuesday’s 2-1 win over West Brom, Firpo would also have no guaranteed playing time in England.
