Real Betis have revealed that they have received four bids for winger Joaquin, one of which came from Barcelona.
“We have very important offers for the sale of Joaquin,” the Seville-based club’s supremo told Radio Marca.
“One of them will be Barcelona.
“All the great clubs are always open for negotiations when you speak about a star and Joaquin is a very good player.”
Chelsea tabled two bids in December but were unable to agree a deal during the transfer window in January.
“I want an important effort to keep the player,” added Lopera.
“I am not interested in the exit of Joaquin because my club needs the aid of all the players.”
