Tottenham and Liverpool plot £17m Barca swoop

Sergi Roberto (Barcelona)Tottenham and Liverpool are planning £17m January moves for Barcelona midfielder Sergi Roberto, according to reports from the Daily Star.

The 21-year-old is currently way down the pecking order at the Nou Camp, with the likes of Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Cesc Fabregas all vying for a starting berth.

This has caused Roberto to consider his future, as he looks to secure regular action to further his development.

Tottenham and Liverpool have been alerted by the situation, with the Premier League pair keen to offer the youngster an escape route.

Reports suggest that both sides have made contact with the Barca star’s agent, who is seeking a winter switch for his client.

But, the Catalan outfit are keen to keep their starlet and may well insist that his £17m release clause is triggered.

Roberto made his senior debut in 2010, but has only completed six first-team outings since then.

Tata Martino sees him as a good back-up option, but is unlikely to push him ahead any of his star names as he looks to secure Barca’s second La Liga title in a row.

Italian giants AC Milan are also thought to be keen.
