FC Barcelona have many talents within the club that other sides are interested in. Their players are often envied by rival clubs, and some even try to snatch up those players. However, it is not just clubs that are enticed by the stars of Barcelona, even certain agents can not seem to help themselves.

One such agent hails from Portugal and is named Jorge Mendes. Considered one of the leading representatives in the world of football, he is often put in a different category of super agents. Most of his clients are also high-profile players with a great list of accomplishments and potential.

He already represents the likes of Lamine Yamal, Alejandro Balde, Ansu Fati, Joao Cancelo, and Joao Felix. These are just his clients associated and linked with Barcelona, his global reach extends to even more stars regarded as global icons and beyond.

Now, he reportedly has his eyes set on yet another Barcelona prodigy. According to SPORT, 17-year-old Hector Fort is the next player that Mendes looks toward as a starlet that he wants to add to his catalog of talents.

Despite his tender age, Fort is one of the most exciting prospects from the Barcelona quarry. Primarily a right-back due to his preferred foot of the same side, he can also act as a left-back and has had to do so on several occasions for Barcelona during this ongoing season.

He has participated in five games for the Catalan club in total this season. His first appearance came against Royal Antwerp in the UEFA Champions League group stage. Then, he appeared in two La Liga games, one game in the Spanish Super Cup and once in the Copa Del Ray.

His matches include opponents such as Villarreal, Alaves, Barbastro, Antwerp, and Athletic Club. He has already provided two assists within those five official appearances as well.

Moreover, with Alejandro Balde injured for possibly the remainder of the season, Fort could continue to get even more opportunities to showcase his talents.
