Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is attempting to sign River Plate midfielder Juan Jose Vea Murguia.

The 17-year-old has refused to sign a new contract with the South American side but Redknapp faces competition from Spain and Italy to capture the Argentine’s signature.

The Daily Mirror reports the Tottenham boss will have talks with Murguia, who has a similar style to Lionel Messi, over the next few weeks.

Murguia, who turns 18 in July has been urged by his family to move to the Premier League.

The teenager will play in the South American U17 championships this month and will fly to London to agree terms on a new deal.
