El Mundo Deportivo has reported that both the Reds and Spurs have made enquiries with the midfielder's agent, with the two sides keen to add to their attacking ranks.

But any interested parties will need to have extravagant financial backing due to a hefty €20million release clause in the 21-year-old's contract.

Roberto joined the Barca youth programme back in 2006, with his senior team debut four years later, but has only featured for the Catalan giants in La Liga six times since then.
