Tottenham may try to sign Barcelona's Clement Lenglet in January

Tottenham ‘considering a move for Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet’ in January, with the Spanish giants ready to offload the 26-year-old ‘if they receive the right offer’

  • Tottenham are interested in signing Clement Lenglet from Barcelona next month
  • They signed Emerson Royal from the Spanish side in the last transfer window
  • The two clubs may do business again if Spurs make a suitable offer for Lenglet 

Tottenham are reportedly keen on signing Barcelona centre-back Clement Lenglet in January.

The north London club have managed to keep three clean sheets in their last five league matches under Antonio Conte, but it seems that the Italian still wants to bring in defensive reinforcements next month.

Spurs have been interested in Lenglet for some time, and they could be ready to finally make their move for the 26-year-old, according to Spanish outlet Sport, via The Sun.

Antonio Conte has made a positive start at Tottenham, but still seems keen to add to his squad

It is understood that Barcelona would be open to allowing Lenglet to leave if they receive a reasonable offer as they try to raise funds for Xavi to bolster his squad.

Having signed Emerson Royal from the Catalan giants in August, Tottenham could be set to land a second Barcelona player in the space of five months if they can tempt Lenglet away from the Nou Camp.

Lenglet is in his fourth season at Barcelona, and has won LaLiga and the Copa del Rey during his stay at the club.

However, he has struggled for consistency in recent months, and has largely had to settle for a place on the bench this season.

He has also been unable to cement his place in France’s starting line-up in 2021 as he played just 45 minutes in this summer’s European Championships for Didier Deschamps’ men.

If he did move to Spurs, he would be the second left-footed central defender at Conte’s disposal, alongside Ben Davies.

This could be viewed as a positive by the 52-year-old manager, with Lenglet potentially bringing more balance to a team that already has a number of right-foot dominant centre-backs in Eric Dier, Cristian Romero, Davinson Sanchez, Japhet Tanganga and Joe Rodon.
