Spurs scouts tracking the progress of Barca prospects Adama Traore and Sergi Samper - report

Barcelona V Madrid

Tottenham Hotspur are looking into the possibility of signing Sergi Samper and Adama Traore.

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly watching Barcelona youngsters Sergi Samper and Adama Traore, as they look to utilise Mauricio Pochettino's knowledge of Spain. 

According to a report in the Daily Mail, Tottenham are intending on improving their recruitment from La Liga and they believe that Samper and Traore could be excellent prospects for the future. 

Spurs are building a young squad, who are comfortable in possession, and they feel that the two Barca players will fit in well with their current team's ethos. 

Samper is a defensive midfielder who has been described as the next Sergio Busquets because of his performances in the Barcelona B side. 

The 19-year-old earned his first chance in the senior side in the Championship League this season, but his lack of first-team opportunities since have alerted teams to his potential availability. 

His current contract does not expire until 2017, meaning his future at the Nou Camp looks relatively secure and making a permanent deal unlikely, but Barca have been happy to allow their star youngsters to join the Premier League on loan in recent times.

Everton took Gerard Deulofeu on a temporary basis last year, while Stoke City have signed Bojan for the current season. 

A loan move may also be the most likely way Spurs could acquire Adama Traore, too. 

The jet-heeled winger, who has been capped by Spain up to under-19 level, has already been linked with Manchester United, but he has recently penned a new deal to keep him with the Spanish giants for the foreseeable future. 

It means that Spurs would have to be a sizeable amount of money to sign Traore on a permanent basis but, given the attacking talent Barca have at their disposal, they may be keen to ship him out to a club where first-team opportunities look more likely for the short-term.

Tottenham are also reportedly interested in signing Hector Moreno from Espanyol, while links with Southampton's Jay Rodriguez still persist.
