Liverpool and Tottenham are reportedly keeping tabs on Barcelona midfielder Sergi Roberto with the clubs among a host of possible suitors for the 21 year old.
Roberto is believed to have become dissatisfied at Camp Nou after receiving just three chances this season from Tata Martino and Mundo Deportivo, as translated by Sport Witness, are claiming that as a result he has been more open to a move away from the Catalan giants.
While Chelsea had reportedly made a move for Roberto in the past it's now Tottenham and Liverpool who are in the mix and have contacted the Spain Under 21 international's agent over his availability. AC Milan have also made contact but the clubs are faced with a sky-high release clause worth €20m if they hope to make their interest serious.
Coming from Barcelona's youth program Roberto slowly made his way into the senior line-up while spending four years in the reserve side. His pedigree certainly sees him as a potential star for the future and after the club begrudgingly sold Thiago Alcantara to Bayern Munich in the summer he had hoped to get more chances to shine.
But with the youngster remaining out of favour with Martino he could be tempted to take the chance to join either Tottenham or Liverpool if the sides can promise regular game time, even in January.
Andre Villas-Boas has been open about the fact that he has been scouting Barcelona's younger players this season while Brendan Rodgers is always on the lookout for players who suit his passing tactics.
And if Roberto continues to be unhappy he could in fact be the subject of a bidding war between the top clubs in England with Manchester City also believed to be monitoring the situation surrounding his future.
