Spurs: Lenglet “about to close” Tottenham move

Last season, the Frenchman was on loan in north London.

According to reports in Spain, Tottenham Hotspur are close to signing Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet this summer.

Who will Spurs sign?
Spurs, led by new manager Ange Postecoglou, are now preparing for the 2023/2024 season, with the Lilywhites’ manager holding one of his first press conferences the other day.
The dynamic Australian has spoken about a variety of issues, including his desire to introduce a more aggressive style of play and his satisfaction with Tottenham’s transfer dealings thus far.

The north Londoners have finalised deals for goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario, England international James Maddison for £45 million, winger Manor Solomon on a free transfer and Dejan Kulusevski on a permanent contract from Juventus.
Postecoglou is particularly interested in Maddison, who was a shining light in Leicester City’s relegated squad last season.

“Any manager will tell you that having multiple attacking threats and a midfielder who can score and create goals is part of the key to being a dominant team – they’re not easy to come by,” Postecoglou said.

James has demonstrated that he is capable of doing so.” When you look at Tottenham over the previous several years, you’ll notice that they’ve relied heavily on their front three to score goals. Looking for a player like James seemed like a great fit to me.

He’s at a point in his career where he believes he can be a leader, which is excellent because we need guys who are willing to take on that role.”

According to Mundo Deportivo, Lenglet, who spent the 22/23 season on loan at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, might be joining van de Ven soon.
According to the Spanish outlet’s news editor Javier Gascon, the Frenchman is “about to close” his move to Spurs, but if the deal cannot be completed within the next week, he will go with Barcelona on their US tour and await a decision on his future.
As the La Liga winners want to transfer their £204,000-per-week defender, Lenglet has been granted permission not to train until July 18.

How talented is Clement Lenglet?
The former Sevilla star was a regular under Antonio Conte, making 28 league appearances for Spurs last season, with very few Spurs players recording a greater passing accuracy (87.5%) than Lenglet (WhoScored).

Hugo Lloris, his compatriot, has also lauded the 28-year-old, describing him as a “high level” and “modern” defender last year.

“He’s a modern defender,” Lloris stated.
“It’s nice to be able to play from the back.” He possesses a tremendous left foot and can be quite strong in one-on-one situations as well as in the air.

“Even if it’s never easy to arrive in the Premier League, and he’ll have to adjust to the intensity of the games, he’s a high-level player with experience.”
