Barcelona whiz Gai Assulin is set to move to England in January.

The Israeli teenager has been frustrated by his lack of progress this season, where he has been left on the bench for Barca Atleti after passport problems prevented him from following former coach Pep Guardiola into the club's senior setup.

Assulin counts Pini Zahavi as his agent, who placed Giovani dos Santos at Tottenham in the summer.

Spurs are keen on the striker, at 16 already a full Israel international, though Chelsea, Portsmouth and Manchester City have also been mentioned as potential destinations.
