Barcelona and Real Madrid reportedly go head-to-head for two highly-rated youngsters, according to the recent claims from Spain
The arch-rivals are both interested in signing Eintracht Frankfurt prodigy, Luka Jovic, who has scored 14 goals and contributed four assists in 19 Bundesliga clashes this term.
While Los Blancos look for a proper alternative to Karim Benzema, the Catalans seek a potential replacement for the aging Luis Suarez.
Although no compensation fee has been mentioned yet, the 21-year-old certainly won’t come cheap.
Another starlet that has caught the eye of La Liga heavyweights is Lille winger Nicolas Pepe, closely followed by Arsenal and Bayern Munich over the past few months.
The Ivory Coast international is experiencing an astonishing Ligue 1 campaign with Les Dogue, having managed 16 goals and ten assists in 24 league outings.
However, according to the British publication, SportWitness, Lille president Gerard Lopez is not interested in selling the 23-year-old winger unless someone comes with an offer that exceeds €50 million.
