Tottenham Hotspur are edging ahead of Liverpool in the race to sign Barcelona starlet Gerard Deulofeu on loan for next season.
Deulofeu has been starring for the Barcelona B side for some time but is yet to cement a place in the first team squad and the report claims Camp Nou coaches are keen for him to go out on loan for a year to gain some experience.
It is no surprise that bother Andre Villas-Boas and Brendan Rodgers are interested in such a highly-rated player, especially as both are looking to boost their squads for next season.
However, the Tottenham manager is more likely to be signing the 19-year-old than his Liverpool counterpart, says the report from Spain.
Deulofeu is one of the more exciting products of Barcelona’s famed La Masia academy and has been predicted to go on to big things.
