Barcelona coach Sito Alonso has confirmed interest in French guard Edwin Jackson but admits that there are other options too.

Talking to Spanish media, Alonso admitted that Jackson might not be the most optimal player that his team might find.

Like last season, Barcelona are struggling in the EuroLeague this season at 7 – 12 with defending champions Fenerbahce to come this Friday in Istanbul.

“In addition to the name “Jackson”, I could tell you ten names that we have talked with. Guards and big guys.

“When you try to incorporate a player, the best thing is going with someone whose adaptation will be as fast as possible and Jackson is a well-known player who has been in the league, who has been in the club and on the club’s agenda for quite some time.

“I can’t deny that he is a possibility but there are others as good or even better than he is,” Alonso said via Mundo Deportivo.
