Barcelona club president Joan Laporta reportedly is eager to wrap up a new deal for Ansu Fati with the Catalans desperate to hold on to the No 10.

The youngster has expressed his desire to continue at the Nou Camp and his agent Jorge Mendes is in Barcelona ready to continue negotiations, leaving the club optimistic over seeing a deal over the finishing line soon, according to Marca.
