Valencia left-back Jordi Alba is expected to complete a move to Barcelona in the coming days.

Alba, who is currently away with the Spanish national side ahead of Euro 2012, is reportedly on the verge of joining Barca for a fee in the region of €12 million.

Barcelona striker David Villa is hopeful the deal will be completed for the 23-year-old, who can also play on the left wing.

"I hope Jordi Alba joins us," Villa said. "Not only because he's my friend, but also because he's a spectacular player. Every club would want him."

Alba, asked about his future on Wednesday, suggested he would relish a switch to the Camp Nou.

"I've always said that Barca play the best football and they have very good players," he told RAC 1. "I get along very well with the Barcelona players, but I get on well with my other colleagues too."
