Tottenham fans react to their reported interest in Barcelona youngster Lucas de Vega

Tottenham are reportedly interested in trying to sign Barcelona academy prospect Lucas de Vega – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have responded by claiming the deal makes little sense if it’s going to include a buy-back option.

According to Spanish publication Dario AS, the 20-year-old talent is on the Spurs radar as a possible target this summer and they have made an initial move for him.

It is understood that Jose Mourinho’s side have offered around £2million to try sign the Brazilian, but La Liga giants Barcelona want around £3.6million up front plus the inclusion of a buy-back option.

The report explains that the midfielder’s future is unclear at present, with Sporting Gijon, Malaga, Tenerife and Real Zaragoza all interested in his signature too.

De Vega spent last season out on loan in the Spanish second-tier at FC Cartagena, but he’s a product of the famous Barcelona academy and could end up being kept around their first-team next season.

He’s a highly-rated talent that currently has a £90million release clause and it will be intriguing to see where his future lies.
