Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly looking to sign Barcelona midfielder Carles Alena with Christian Eriksen looking more and more likely to leave the north London club – and Spurs fans have reacted on Twitter.
Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo have claimed that Tottenham are interested in signing 21-year-old midfielder Alena, after trying to do so in the summer. The report claims Spurs made contact with Barcelona over a move for Alena.
However, it did not materialise and Spurs are now expected to reignite said interest in January. Alena has fallen down the pecking order at the Nou Camp, with the midfield talent overflowing under Ernesto Valverde.
The signing of Frenkie de Jong has joined, pushing Alena further down the pecking order behind Ivan Rakitic, Sergio Busquets, Arthur, and Arturo Vidal. He has managed just 45 minutes of action this season, in La Liga.
Alena has a contract at Barcelona until the summer of 2022 and it remains to be seen how much Barca would want for Alena. But Marca claim the midfielder hs a release clause of £64.5million.
Tottenham fans have reacted to the news that their club are reportedly interested in signing Alena, and the majority of Spurs supporters are desperate to see him move to north London.
All I know is he has a banging potential on Fifa

He’s a great player. Because of that, he’s not gonna want to join this club.
