Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing highly-coveted Djurgardens wonderkid Lucas Bergvall, according to the Daily Mail.
The 17-year-old Swedish sensation was on the brink of a move to Barcelona for a reported fee of £8.5 million, but Spurs are looking to potentially hijack the deal.
Despite being earmarked for a move to Camp Nou, Bergvall has garnered attention from several top clubs across Europe, with Manchester United among those expressing interest.
The young midfielder previously trialled with the Red Devils at the age of 14.
Bergvall has garnered attention for his box-to-box ability after an incredible debut in Sweden, contributing to a 3-1 victory against his former club, Brommapojkarna.
His technical finesse and exceptional passing ability have earned him recognition, with an innate ability to place his teammates in dangerous positions.
In addition, his defensive acumen has seen him intervene at crucial moments. He is adept at intercepting opposition attacks.
Having secured his place in the Djurgardens line-up, Bergvall made his first start in May, playing a pivotal role in a 1-0 win against Hacken.
Across 28 appearances in midfield, he showcased his versatility, scoring three goals and affirming his status as one of the most promising talents in European football.
Bergvall’s rise to prominence has been swift, culminating in a senior international debut for Sweden earlier this January.
He made a memorable appearance, featuring for 31 minutes in Sweden’s 2-1 victory over Estonia.
Bergvall’s journey has been remarkable, but he has a tough decision ahead of him. He has to choose between a move to exciting Premier League side Tottenham or a transfer to unstable La Liga giants Barcelona.
