Spain boss Robert Moreno has confirmed that the RFEF are attempting to nationalise Barcelona attacker Ansu Fati.

The 16-year-old became Barca's youngest ever goalscorer with a strike against Osasuna last month before netting again in his team's 5-2 win over Valencia on Saturday night.

Fati was born in Guinea-Bassau but moved to Spain at the age of eight, and his father could be offered Spanish nationality having stayed and worked in the country for the last 10 years.

Moreno has confirmed that the Spanish FA is attempting to bring the teenager into the La Roja fold.

"The people of the Spanish FA are working on it to bring Ansu Fati and then it will be the decision of the player," Moreno told Movistar+. "The federation works to have the best players. It is a joy for Barcelona, as he is a player who came through La Masia. He has to be calm and I hope he is."

Fati - recently hailed by Barca boss Ernesto Valverde - is yet to make an underage international appearance for Guinea-Bissau, Spain or Portugal, who offer citizenship to Guinea-Bissau citizens.
