Barcelona defender, Jordi Alba, has become a wanted man for a lot of the biggest teams in the Premier League. Various outlets have spoken about the interest in Alba but one has gone as far as to offer a probability rating of the left back making a move away from the Camp Nou.

While Alba is currently away with the Spain national team at the World Cup, in England they claim there's a 3.2 out of 5 chance that Alba will be playing for Tottenham Hotspur next season.

This is despite Alba having a contract with Barcelona which runs until 2020 and a buyout clause of €150m, a lot more than most English sides would be willing to offer.

The probability rating has come from 'Football Whispers', a website which studies transfer rumours all over the world and calculates the likelihood of a move coming to fruition. The rumour is given a score out of a five which means, according to them, a move to Tottenham is possible.

All that being said, the reality of the situation appears much different. Alba is highly valued at Barcelona and his buyout clause is prohibitive for most clubs in world football.
