Alves Keen To Replace Valdes

Valencia goalkeeper Diego Alves admits that he would be keen to full Victor Valdes' gloves at Barcelona.

Valdes has already expressed his desire to leave Barca at the end of his current contract, which expires next summer, and the Catalans are scouting for a new shot-stopper.

Alves admits that he would be interested in the job if it came his way, though he says no official approach has been made.

"Who wouldn’t like to play for Barca?" Alves told Placar. "Still, it isn’t just down to me. There is always speculation about me, but nothing official.

"I’ll keep doing my job for Valencia, where I have a contract until 2015.  However, I’m sorry that Valdes is leaving. He’s a great loss to them. I think he’s the most in-form keeper around."

Valdes has been in top form in recent weeks, saving two penalties in their last two outings, and Barca boss Gerardo Martino has praised him for his efforts.

"I don’t think it’s for me to say (if Valdes is the best in Spain). He’s in exceptional form, he’s among the top three Spanish keepers, and all I can do is enjoy it," Martino said.

"He made three or four key saves, but there’s no chance of him renewing his contract."
