The Spanish international ace spent last season on loan at El Estadio Ruiz de Lopera, but his time back at his former club was blighted by injury.
A deal to keep him at Betis appeared to flounder last month, with the Ruiz de Lopera outfit reportedly baulking at Barca`s asking price.
Betis and Barca officials are still talking, with the Catalans keen to remove him from the wage bill as they plan for next term.
Racing Santander and Espanyol are said to be monitoring Alfonso`s situation, but their respective financial positions are not as strong as Betis`.
Despite his injury problems, Betis rate Alfonso highly and will continue talks over the coming days in a bid to conclude a deal.
