Fee revealed with Tottenham in ‘advanced negotiations’ to sign Clement Lenglet from Barcelona

An update on the future of Barcelona star Clement Lenglet, currently on loan in England with Tottenham Hotspur, has been forthcoming late on Friday.

Central defender Lenglet, of course, has spent the season to date plying his trade in north London.

After falling further out of favour at Barca owing to the arrivals of the likes of Andreas Christensen and Jules Kounde, the French international was allowed to depart on a year-long loan.

His time in Tottenham colours, however, has since also proven something of a hit-and-miss affair, with Lenglet having managed starts in 19 of the Lilywhites’ 31 Premier League outings.

Often singled out for criticism as a result of his rash and inconsistent nature, the general consensus, in turn, had long been that the 27-year-old would likely be returned to sender at the Camp Nou this summer.

If the latest word stemming from the Spanish media on Friday is anything to by, however, then this, in fact, does not look set to be the case.

Instead, as per a report from Diario Sport, the board at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium are in ‘advanced negotiations’ with their Barcelona counterparts, to make Lenglet’s arrival a permanent one.

A deal worth a fee in the region of €12 million is understood to be close to completion, after Spurs stepped up their pursuit amid mounting interest in the stopper’s signature from rival suitors.
