Reds join United in race to sign Deportivo La Coruna winger Pinchi pic.twitter.com/JDkCc55d4Q— Football Views (@FootballViewsUK) February 13, 2018
The 22-year-old’s contract runs out at the end of the current season, but because of his age, Pinchi’s current club Deportivo will receive some - albeit little - compensation.
Pinchi has been playing for Deportivo’s second time and has been catching the eye of top Premier League sides with his blistering pace.
The youngster would add to a front line that has been collectively on fire this season, but Roberto Firmino, Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mane have barely had a rest this season with the extra fixtures in the Champions League.
Manchester United have also taken note of Pinchi, believing that he would have the ability to compete for a place in Jose Mourinho’s squad in the future.
Spurs, on the other hand, see him as a cheaper alternative to Bordeaux winger Malcom, who was heavily linked to the North London club before Mauricio Pochettino secured the signature of Lucas Moura in January.
