Tottenham Hotspur plot late swoop for Barcelona forward Ansu Fati

Tottenham Hotspur have opened talks with Barcelona over a potential loan move for Ansu Fati, reports COPE journalist Helena Condis.

Fati’s future has remained a subject of speculation throughout the summer, but Xavi has maintained that the Spanish forward is integral to his plans.

However, the scenario may change in the final days of the transfer window, with Barca opening the door for his departure.

Fati, who had previously committed his future to his boyhood club, is now reconsidering his stance and wants to seek a new challenge elsewhere.

The Spaniard’s father, Bori Fati, and agent Jorge Mendes have scheduled a meeting today in Seville to resolve the situation.

Spurs are the best-placed club to sign Fati, although he has been offered to fellow London rivals Chelsea.

Barca believe Fati’s departure is necessary for them to bring in Atletico Madrid superstar Joao Felix before Friday’s deadline.

The Catalan giants have stepped up their efforts to land the Portuguese forward on loan, with the player also determined to join the Blaugrana.

Spurs are looking to sign Fati on loan, and the Catalan giants want them to cover his entire wages.

The London club have made a great start to the new season under Ange Postecoglou, showing signs they could be genuine top-four contenders.

Fati can provide competition to Heung-min Son on the left flank and can also fill the void left by Harry Kane.

The Spaniard’s form may have fluctuated over the last couple of years through injuries, but his potential is undoubted, and he has all the makings of a world-class forward.

Tottenham must have noted the 20-year-old’s immense quality when he produced a top-notch performance against them in the Joan Gamper Trophy.
