Tottenham keen on Barcelona youngster Lucas de Vega
According to Spanish publication La Verdad, via Sport Witness (h/t Football.london), Tottenham Hotspur are among a host of clubs interested in signing Barcelona youngster Lucas de Vega.
The 20-year-old De Vega has been with the Barcelona youth academy since a very young age. A versatile operator, the Brazilian mostly features as a central midfielder, but can also play as a No. 10 or on either flanks as well.
De Vega is yet to make his first-team debut for Barcelona, while he has also not featured for the club’s B team. He does have four appearances for the U19s, in the UEFA Youth League, scoring one goal. (h/t Transfermarkt)
The midfielder spent the last season out on loan with La Liga 2 outfit Cartagena. De Vega made a strong impression, racking up twenty appearances, in which he found the back of the net on one occasion. (h/t Transfermarkt)
Back at Barcelona, De Vega’s future at the club is now a subject of intense speculation. Cartagena cannot afford to sign him again due to his wages, but he is also attracting a lot of interest from a number of clubs.
Tottenham are claimed to be one among the clubs interested in the midfielder. Along with the North London outfit, Spanish clubs Sporting Gijon, Tenerife and Malaga are all looking to sign the Brazilian. (h/t Football.london)

It has been a positive transfer window for us so far. We are working towards strengthening the first-team, with two signings already coming through.
At the same time, we shouldn’t ignore strengthening our youth and reserve squads. Not much is known about De Vega, so it will be interesting to see if the club do go ahead with the Brazilian’s signing.
