Tottenham receives a boost as the 28-year-old refuses to join another team this summer.

Tottenham Hotspur fans who would like to see Clement Lenglet return to the club this summer have got some good news, as the defender has refused to relocate to Saudi Arabia.

According to a report in Mundo Deportivo, the 28-year-old might be open to heading to the Saudi Pro League later in his career.

Clement Lenglet is wanted by Barcelona before the transfer window shuts. And it appeared that he may return to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium following his loan stay last year.

According to Sport, Spurs have agreed to a three-year contract with Lenglet. Tottenham, on the other hand, were unwilling to match Al-Nassr‘s £12.9 million proposal for the centre-back.

That seemed to imply that Ange Postecoglou‘s squad could be out of the running to sign Lenglet shortly. However, according to Mundo Deportivo, sources close to the defender have stated that he does not want to transfer to Saudi Arabia during this window.

He would rather continue his career at one of Europe’s premier leagues. Tottenham would certainly be in a better position as a result of this.

According to the source, Barcelona does not anticipate to earn a large sum for Lenglet. Their top aim is to deduct his compensation from the bill.

That certainly works in Spurs’ favor if they want to attempt to negotiate a reduced cost.

Obviously, the worst-case situation for Barcelona would be for Lenglet to stay at Camp Nou beyond this window. So, if he is willing to dig his heels in over a move to the Middle East, Barcelona may have to back down on their demands.

Signing Lenglet on a permanent basis will not pique Spurs supporters’ interest. But if they can get his signature for a little amount, that may be a good move.
