Tottenham ‘tracking’ Barcelona midfielder Riqui Puig?

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino watched Barcelona B this weekend and reports say he was scouting midfielder Riqui Puig.

The Catalan side were taking on Cornella with the Spurs supremo pictured in attendance, sparking media reports he was interested in signing the teenage prodigy.

The 19-year-old is said to be one of the brightest talents to emerge from La Masia’s youth system in recent years and he is slowly being integrated into Barca’s first-team squad.

Puig only made his debut for Barca’s B team in February this year having progressed through the club’s youth system but has been training in the first-team squad for six months.

His release clause stands at a whopping €100m but Diario Sport cite a report from English tabloid The Sun that the North London outfit – who did not sign anyone this summer – are eyeing a move.
