Mauricio Pochettino could use personal connection to land Carles Alena
The 21-year-old has struggled for regular game time at Barcelona after breaking into the first-team last season.
Alena has just 46 minutes of La Liga football under his belt and the Spaniard will be allowed to leave the Nou Camp on loan in the winter window (h/t Express).
The report claims that two Premier League clubs are keen on Alena but Spurs have an advantage, thanks to Mauricio Pochettino. The manager is very close to Alena’s representative Ivan de la Pena and they watched the Barca star in action together last season (h/t Express).
Barca want Alena to play
The Catalans would demand regular first-team action for Alena should he join another club in January (h/t Express).
However, the youngster is yet to feature in the Champions League this season and has mostly played in the Copa del Rey.
It will be interesting to see if we make a move for Alena in the winter window. Tottenham have options for their midfield and with Giovani Lo Celso returning from a long-term injury, the Argentine could get more minutes on the pitch.
