Tottenham’s half-price offer could see them lose out on young Barcelona star

Jose Mourinho needs to make a dent in the summer transfer market if he wants his Tottenham Hotspur side to be challenging for honours in the 2020/21 Premier League season.

Having already completed the signing of Matt Doherty from Wolverhampton Wanderers per BBC Sport, the north Londoners are now showing an interest in Barca B’s Lucas De Vega, according to AS and cited by Football Espana.

Sporting Gijon, Malaga, Tenerife and Real Zaragoza are all potentially new destinations for the player according to Football Espana, but if the north Londoners can stump up the €4m (+€4m in add-ons_ that the Catalans want, then De Vega will be their player.

Football Espana report that, at this stage however, Tottenham have only offered €2m for the youngster’s services.

With the outlet also noting that Barcelona themselves would prefer to keep hold of him as a potential future first team player, and with his buyout clause set €100m, the north Londoners would seem to have a hell of a task ahead of them in persuading the Catalans to part with De Vega.

It may, eventually, come down to the will of the player to get a deal done one way or the other.

    Been a good window so far NEED a genuine second centr-foward and a central defender. Another right back would be nice and Bale would be excellent.

      Good comment until you mention Bale is it with you Spurs fan. The reality is Kane is advertise as untouchable and rightly so, but he has no business logging all those minutes. It would be hard for an academy player to get time off the bench because the pressure will be enormous. No young player wants to come sit on the pine. The manager has not indicated he is willing to cut Kane’s time down. Hence, you sign a less ambitious but good proven vet like Giroud. We need not worry about Bale and be concerned about getting a creative midfielder in. A fit Tanguy will help Gio out with the pile up on matches. Jose just need to recognize Tanguy potential just as Poch did with Sissoko once he starts to work hard in practice. I do not believe failed as much as he was hindered by the injuries and change of manager, but you can see the potential. Jose already smack him upside the head, it time put his arms around him cause Levy not taking a loss on him.
