Spurs could launch a raid on Barcelona with two stars reportedly in their sights.
The club are looking to bolster their backline and midfield and could take advantage of the pair being on Barcelona’s fringes.
They were among the only first-team players not to feature in Barca’s 3-0 win over Real Madrid in Arlington.
The players in question are Franck Kessie and Clement Lenglet, according to Mundo Deportivo.
Mail Sport understands that Spurs must raise money to fund the signings, something that Harry Kane’s proposed sale to Bayern Munich would do.
Ange Postecoglou’s side are eyeing two Barcelona fringe men to help them into the top four
Spurs reportedly want to take 26-year-old midfielder Franck Kessie off Barcelona’s hands
They are also looking at bringing back Clement Lenglet, who was on loan with them in 2022/23
Kessie rejected a move to Spurs back in January as he wanted to fight for his Nou Camp place while Lenglet spent last season on loan with them.
Kessie only joined La Blaugrana from AC Milan last summer but found himself on the bench more often than not.
Since fairly early on, the defensive midfielder has had to fend off speculation that he could leave the club and fight for his future.
Barcelona have also been keen to move on Clement Lenglet to get his wages off the books.
They are under considerable financial strain and any transfer income and reduced wages will be welcome.
