Albert Ferrer Llopis (born 6 June 1970 in Barcelona, Catalonia) is a former Spanish footballer.

A pacy and tough-tackling right back, "Chapi" began his career with FC Barcelona B. He then went on loan to CD Tenerife. He returned to FC Barcelona in 1990 and became the club's established right-back for the next eight years. The team were hugely successful in this period, winning five La Liga championships, one European Cup, one Cup Winners' Cup, two Copa del Reys, four Supercopa de Españas and two European Super Cups. He made over 300 appearances for the Catalan giants.

Ferrer moved to Chelsea in June 1998 for £2.2 million and quickly established himself in the side, helping the club qualify for its first ever Champions League campaign in his first season. Chelsea won the FA Cup the following year (but he missed the final through injury) and reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League. During that run he played in 14 of the club's 16 games in that competition and scored his only goal for Chelsea in a 2-0 win against Hertha BSC Berlin.

A combination of injuries and manager Gianluca Vialli's squad rotation policy reduced Ferrer's opportunities in the following season and he made only 14 league appearances. The club reached another FA Cup final in 2002 (which he again missed, though this time through not being selected). Out of favour and facing strong competition from younger defenders at the club, Ferrer made just seven league appearances in his final two years at Chelsea and left in May 2003 upon the expiry of his contract. In total, he played 113 games for Chelsea.

Ferrer was also a Spanish international and won 36 caps. He was an ever-present in the side at USA '94 as Spain reached the quarter-finals but missed Euro '96 through injury. His only game at the 1998 world cup was the shock 3-2 defeat to Nigeria, which saw Spain crash out in the group stages. He was also a part of Spain's gold medal winning football team at the 1992 Olympic Games.
