Barcelona have been linked with a move for Santos starlet Rodrygo Goes recently, and the 17-year-old will have impressed in his latest outing.

The Brazilian who has already been labelled ‘the new Neymar’ hit his first senior hat-trick in just nine minutes against Vitória.

And it looked a little something like this:

Rodrygo also grabbed an assist as Santos won 5-2, and it’s the kind of display that will surely have only heightened Barcelona’s interest.

The teenager’s match stats also make for pretty impressive reading.

Rodrygo looks a hugely exciting talent, and if he continues to shine it looks like it won’t be long before he’s snapped up by one of Europe’s top clubs.
