Late bid from Tottenham Hotspur could see them snatch 17-year-old midfield talent from Barcelona

Article Title: Barcelona face late Tottenham competition for Lucas Bergvall

Introduction to the article:
Barcelona looked to be on the verge of signing promising 17-year-old midfielder Lucas Bergvall, but a late bid from Tottenham Hotspur could jeopardize their efforts to secure his signature.

Barcelona’s Pursuit

The Blaugrana have been engaged in negotiations with Bergvall and Djurgardens for several months, and were thought to have beaten off interest from numerous other clubs. A deal worth €7m plus €3m in variables had reportedly been agreed upon with Djurgardens, and Bergvall was even seen in Barcelona discussing a potential move with Sporting Director Deco.

Tottenham’s Late Bid

However, reports from Swedish paper Expressen, as carried by Sport, suggest that Bergvall was also in London over the weekend discussing a possible move to Tottenham. Their bid could see his price tag rise to €15m, and they have offered higher wages and meaningful playing time for the young talent. The presence of Dejan Kulusevski, who hails from the same academy as Bergvall, may also be a draw for the promising midfielder.

Competition for Signature

With Xavi Hernandez’s departure reportedly weakening Barcelona’s proposal, it seems that the competition for Bergvall’s signature will come down to the Spanish club and Tottenham. It remains to be seen whether Barcelona’s prestige and Deco’s influence will be enough to convince Bergvall to choose them over the English side.
