Spurs and Leipzig are in the hunt for £13m Barcelona starlet Moriba

are set to hold further talks this weekend over a move for starlet Ilaix Moriba.

Spurs and RB Leipzig have now emerged as frontrunners to sign the exciting 18-year-old midfielder who could leave the Nou Camp club before next Tuesday’s transfer deadline.

Moriba’s representatives had been in talks over a new deal, but negotiations stalled with the two parties failing to agree on the players’ wage demands in June as Moriba was sidelined from the first-team picture and hasn’t even been selected by Barcelona B since.

Barcelona are now preparing to listen to offers for the £13m-rated, Guinea-born Spain youth international, who has one year left on his current contract.

Moriba made his debut as a 16-year-old for Barca’s B side under the tutelage of Garcia Pimienta, featuring regularly before scoring his first goal for the club’s second-string team against Llagostera in a 3-2 win in March 2020.

He was then called up to the first-team squad for the 4-0 win at Granada in January this year. 

Although he didn’t feature, he remained in Ronald Koeman’s thinking and several further call-ups, he made his debut as a starter on February 13, playing for 64 minutes against Alaves and even setting up the opener for Trincao, now at Wolves. 

That strike came just a few weeks after the young midfielder made his debut against Alaves

March 6 saw Moriba make score his first Barcelona goal as Lionel Messi laid a pass off for the teenager to switch the ball onto his left foot before rifling home from 20 yards to seal a 2-0 win against Osasuna.

In total, Moriba featured 14 times for Koeman last term and steadily grew into a constant presence in the Barca matchday side.
