Tottenham Hotspur and Everton are both in the reckoning to sign young Barcelona forward Munir El Haddadi, according to The Daily Mail.

The Premier League pair have both strengthened their respective squads over the summer months and played out a 1-1 draw on the opening day of the new Premier League season.

El Haddadi is tipped to be a star of the future and has already been capped at senior level by Spain, despite still only being 20.

With Barcelona’s star attacking trident of Neymar, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi, the La Masia graduate is expected to be on the fringes at Camp Nou this season.

As such, a potential switch to the Premier League could be on the cards.

Spurs have added Vincent Janssen to Mauricio Pochettino’s squad, with the Netherlands international impressing the White Hart Lane faithful with an industrious display against Crystal Palace over the weekend.

Everton boss Ronald Koeman is frantically trying to bring new faces to Goodison Park before the window closes.

The Toffees have had success with a similar deal with the Catalan giants, with Gerard Deulofeu’s loan stint on Merseyside a success before a permanent deal was later agreed.

Munir made 26 appearances for Barcelona in all competitions last season, scoring eight goals in the process.
