Spurs face Barca fight for 'new Kaka'

Published Add your comment

Barcelona have joined AC Milan and Tottenham Hotspur in the race to sign Internacional starlet Oscar reports skysports.com.

Oscar dos Santos Emboaba Junior, as he is known fully, rose to prominence with a hat-trick in the final of the 2011 FIFA U20 World Cup in the summer, with scouts from several major European clubs keeping tabs on the 20-year-old playmaker.

Tottenham have a partnership agreement with the Porto Algre-based outfit, meaning Harry Redknapp could have first refusal on the youngster if Spurs want to make their interest concrete.

But Oscar has also been a transfer target for Milan for some time, though the Serie A giants are yet to make official contact according to Sport.


 

The South American starlet only joined Internacional from Sao Paulo in 2010, and having made only 22 appearances for the first team, it is unclear whether Oscar would be prepared to move again so soon.

Spurs have also been credited with an interest in fellow Brazilian and Internacional teammate Leandro Damiao, who was consistently linked with a move to White Hart Lane in the summer.

The Barlays Premier League club may look to strike a double deal for the talented duo, but there is no question they will face a fight for their respective signatures.
