Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino was at the Mini Estadi on Saturday and reports in England say his target is Barcelona B midfielder Riqui Puig. 

Pochettino's visit to Catalonia coincided with the international break and The Sun report that he's a big fan of teenager Puig. 

Spurs were said to be interested in the youngster earlier this year, before he signed a new deal with Barcelona and went on the first team's tour of the United States. 

As a result of that new deal, Puig now has a release clause of 100 million euros. 

Puig didn't start on Saturday but did come on as Barça B beat Cornella 2-1 to remain in the hunt for promotion back to the second tier of Spanish football. 

Pochettino was in the region to give a chat to fellow coaches as part of a linkup with the Catalan Football Federation. 

The Argentine spent a large part of his playing career in Barcelona playing for Espanyol, who he later managed before moving to England.
