Report: Tottenham have agreed three-year contract to sign ‘excellent’ £13m player

Tottenham Hotspur continue to be linked with Clement Lenglet with a three-year deal allegedly in the pipeline for the Barcelona defender.

As he waits for a deal between Tottenham Hotspur and Barcelona, Clement Lenglet has signed to a three-year contract with Tottenham Hotspur.

According to the Catalan tabloid SPORT, Barcelona is eager to get rid of Lenglet as quickly as possible.

Lenglet’s wages are a burden for Barcelona, and another loan to Tottenham with a buy option hasn’t been ruled out.

Lenglet is reportedly highly keen in staying and does have a verbal agreement on a three-year deal with Tottenham.

Spurs allegedly value Lenglet’s professionalism but there is still no agreement with Barcelona despite discussing the deal during the Joan Gamper Trophy game between the two clubs this week.

The La Liga side are seeking around €15million (£13million) for Lenglet, a fee Tottenham have absolutely no plans to pay.

Lenglet’s huge wages mean that Tottenham are seeking a very cheap deal and that is causing the hold-up.

It’s even stated that Barcelona are now offering Lenglet to other clubs such as AC Milan and Juventus.

Tottenham could see Lenglet go elsewhere, or maybe Barcelona are just trying to tempt Tottenham into making a firm move now.

Tosin Adarabioyo situation may tempt Tottenham back to Clement Lenglet

Micky van de Ven, a center defender from Wolfsburg, has been acquired by Tottenham this week.

Despite the availability of Joe Rodon, Davinson Sanchez, and Japhet Tanganga, Ange Postecoglou still desires one more player.

Lenglet, who Cristian Romero called “excellent,” may be the right player for Tottenham, but his performance last year wasn’t exactly stellar.

The Frenchman spent the campaign on loan at Tottenham and didn’t exactly pull up any trees.

Going back in for Lenglet feels a little like the easy option for Tottenham rather than somebody who is really elevating Ange Postecoglou’s squad.

Maybe Lenglet is seen as an alternative to Fulham’s Tosin Adarabioyo.

Foot Mercato claim that, whilst Tottenham want Adarabioyo, he prefers a move to Monaco this summer.

That may leave Tottenham pivoting to other defensive targets who won’t break the bank, such as Lenglet.
