Tottenham are interested in signing Barcelona midfielder Carles Alena this summer, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish outlet AS claims Mauricio Pochettino is keen on bringing in the 19-year-old, who made four appearances for Barcelona’s first team last season after impressing for Barcelona B.

The report reveals Alena is represented by former Barcelona captain¬†Carles Puyol and Pochettino’s ex-teammate at Espanyol, Ivan De La Pena. Pochettino is believed to be close friends with the pair, which could speed things up.

You can watch Alena score his only Barcelona goal in the Copa del Rey last season below.
