Speaking to La Vanguardia (h/t Fabrizio Romano), Barcelona president Joan Laporta was full of confidence as he sets his sights on striking a deal with Tottenham Hotspur for the permanent transfer of Clement Lenglet.

The French defender, who spent last season on loan at the North London club, showcased his abilities and left a lasting impression. He was not outstanding by any stretch of the imagination but went about his job without much fuss.

At 28 years old, Clement Lenglet finds himself at a crossroads in his career. It is evident that he does not feature in Barcelona’s future plans, and the Catalan giants are keen to offload him during the upcoming transfer window.

With this in mind, Laporta remains hopeful that a deal with Tottenham can be reached, allowing Lenglet to embark on a new chapter in his career. Tottenham, on the other hand, find themselves in dire need of defensive reinforcements.

The potential departures of Eric Dier, Davinson Sanchez, and even Japhet Tanganga, who may seek regular playing time elsewhere, have left Spurs with limited options at the back. Even if they stay, they are not the best options for us to have.

The acquisition of Lenglet could prove pivotal for manager Ange Postecoglou as he looks to fortify his defensive line ahead of the upcoming season. The Frenchman will also suit the kind of football that the Australian wants his team to play.

One player who has stood out amidst the defensive uncertainty at Tottenham is Cristian Romero. The Argentine centre-back has established himself as a reliable and commanding presence in defence.

Lenglet has already experienced life in English football, and the prospect of continuing in the highly competitive Premier League next season could ignite his enthusiasm. Having adapted to the demands of the English game during his loan spell at Tottenham, Lenglet could relish the opportunity.
