Tottenham Hotspur are ‘close’ to signing centre-back Clement Lenglet from Barcelona 

According to Spanish outlet CCMA (h/t Football.London), Tottenham Hotspur are set to reach an agreement with Barcelona to sign Clement Lenglet

Clement Lenglet’s Barcelona spell has been filled with disappointment as he has made some blunders which have cost the team crucial points in the last few seasons. The Frenchman has only started seven matches in the La Liga this term. 

After the emergence of Ronald Araújo, it is highly improbable that Xavi would give Lenglet many chances in the next season. The Catalan giants are now looking to offload the 26-year-old in the following summer window.

Tottenham have been linked with Lenglet in recent times. As Antonio Conte has been pushed to use full-back, Ben Davies in the centre-back position, the Spurs might be seeking opportunities to acquire a quality left-footed centre-back. 

Now it is believed that Tottenham are closing on reaching an agreement for a two-season loan spell with the French defender. 

How can Lenglet help Tottenham? 

Due to the lack of quality and form in the available central defenders, Tottenham have been using Ben Davies on the right side of the three-man defence. Even though the Welshman has given a consistent spell, the results might have been better if a solid centre-back had played in that position.

Lenglet seems to be a decent option as he would be able to bring the much-needed competition for the role, which might shoot up the performance of both players. Considering the Frenchman has played a lot of top-flight games in his first two seasons with Barcelona, he has the expertise required to flourish and with the guidance of our Italian manager, he might be able to rejuvenate his form.

As the Frenchman hasn’t played a lot of games last season, his price tag would be significantly lower. By saving the money from his signing, the Spurs would be able to invest in other transfer targets.

They might even attempt to sign a top-notch central defender who would then be converted into first-team regular, pushing Lenglet for the backup spot.
