Barcelona Closing in on Montreal Impact Sensation


Ballou Jean-Yves Tabla is one of the hottest prospects in the MLS.

The Montreal Impact starlet scored 8 goals and assisted further 5 in his debut season in the MLS last year and it was not too long before Europe’s biggest clubs took notice of his emerging talents.

Premier League reigning champions Chelsea are said to be monitoring the 18-year-old forward but the latest reports coming from the Spanish press have it that Barcelona have emerged as frontrunners for his signature.

The Catalans are said to have opened negotiations over a January move.

Tabla is a versatile forward who can fill in a number of positions in attack. He is able to play on both flanks and as a winger which is exactly why Barcelona keep him in high regard and want to see him move to Camp Nou.
