Tottenham Transfer News: Clement Lenglet might make a permanent transfer to Tottenham Hotspur, according to a report from the Spanish publication SPORT. The top clubs in the Premier League have advanced transfer window talks with Barcelona. And the clubs’ deal might be worth as much as $14 million.
In recent years, Clement Lenglet’s popularity has plummeted. A few years ago, when he had finally broken through to become Barcelona’s starting central defender, he felt on top of the world. The Frenchman’s success at club level translated to consistent playing time for his national team. His lack of consistency, however, has led to his steady demotion at FC Barcelona.
After seeing his status plummet at Barcelona, Lenglet was loaned out to Tottenham in the summer of 2022. The 27-year-old has played 27 times for Spurs in all competitions and has become a regular starter. The conclusion of the player’s loan to Tottenham comes at a pivotal time in his professional development.
There have been conflicting rumours about Tottenham’s position on making Lenglet a permanent addition to the team. The north London giants were reportedly willing to prolong the player’s tenure at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, as reported by many sites last month.
Tottenham Transfer News: Reports indicate that a €14 million deal for French central defender Clement Lenglet, 27 years old, is progressing between Barcelona and Tottenham
A permanent transfer to Tottenham seems unlikely for the Barcelona defender, according to rumours this month. Nonetheless, Evidence now suggests that the original statements were accurate. According to the Spanish media, Barcelona and Tottenham are making progress in their negotiations. So, a contract may be reached during the summer.
Spurs would likely not have to spend more than €14 million to reach an agreement. Indeed, it seems like the most desirable outcome for everyone concerned. This is due to the fact that Lenglet’s future will be guaranteed with a permanent transfer to Tottenham, while Barcelona can go some way toward balancing the books.
Despite the fact that acquiring a 27-year-old is not ideal, Lenglet provides Spurs with a serviceable backup. It remains to be seen, though, whether Barcelona’s negotiations with the north London club bear fruit.
