FC Barcelona are convinced that they continue to have a foothold when it comes to acquiring promising talents. The Catalan giants are unable to spend big in the transfer market, so their attention has shifted towards promising starlets. However, no front is an easy escape for Barcelona it seems.

For La Blaugrana, one name who stands out a lot for his technical and physical brilliance is Lucas Bergvall. Hailing from Sweden, the European wonderkid had a lot of teams after his signature. Ultimately, it began to be reported that his dream lies in playing for Barcelona, something the Catalans greatly appreciated.

Moreover, this led to both parties trying to advance the deal as much as possible. Currently signed to Swedish outfit Djurgardens, Barcelona are speculated to have convinced them with their latest offer. Furthermore, Bergvall himself was recently in Barcelona and directly met up with club director Deco.

However, as per the latest information from Fabrizio Romano, the ending may not be too smooth for Barça and Bergvall. As per the reliable Italian journalist, English outfit Tottenham Hotspur is now actively trying to hijack the deal and attempting to lure the talented 17-year-old away from Catalonia.

The midfielder is a great dream for Barcelona as well, and they really hope to sign him. His latest visit to the city shows clearly that the deal is indeed advanced, and Barça just needs to add the finishing touches. However, Spurs are quite insistent upon taking him away and Romano has provided additional details.

He stated that the Premier League side is regularly calling Bergvall and trying to convince him. They try to lure him away and Romano even confirmed that Bergvall was in London to meet Spurs not too long ago as well. However, Barcelona remains confident that they will be able to get their man, as per the Italian journalist.

With Djurgardens already on board, all that is left is the player’s green light. Once Barcelona secures that, his arrival in the summer of 2024 will be all but guaranteed. His inclusion would be a great boost to the Catalan giants, who for sure will be excited about including Bergvall in their rebuild for the future.
