According to a report by Daily Star, Barcelona are planning a summer swoop to sign promising Tottenham Hotspur starlet Reo Griffiths.
Griffiths burst on to the scenes after scoring a whopping 4 goals and providing 3 assists in a single game as Spurs U18 side subjected Arsenal U18 to a humiliating 9-0 loss. Since then, there has been speculation about a possible summer transfer.
Barcelona have a reputation of sorts for scouting and signing young talent. They did something similar last summer by snapping up Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund and it looks like they are planning to do the same with Griffiths this time.
The 17-year-old striker is being primed for a bright future but it remains to be seen if Tottenham are able to retain his services.
The prospect of moving to a richly-cultured club like Barcelona might seem enticing for the youngster but even if he does stay back with Spurs, he could be in line for superstardom.
Although Harry Kane has been leading the line for a long time, there has been a lot of debate about how we are over-reliant on him. To have an academy product like Griffiths acting as a deputy can work wonders for us as.
Given that we will be competing on multiple fronts next term, it would seem unwise to let a player of Griffiths’ calibre leave. Also, Daily Star claims Barcelona will have to pay a compensation to acquire his services and considering his talent, Spurs must reject all advances.
