Everton: Spanish source makes Clement Lenglet transfer claim -Everton News

Everton are interested in signing Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet, according to Spanish sources

The lowdown: Lenglet’s career so far

Signed for £31.7m from fellow La Liga outfit Sevilla (Sky Sports), the French centre-back played 45 times in 2018/19 as Barca lifted the Spanish title.

Overall, Lenglet has made 157 appearances for the Catalan giants, adding the Copa Del Rey and Spanish Super Cup to his trophy cabinet in the process.

However, a move away from Barcelona could now be on the cards for the France international…

The lowdown: Everton interested in Lenglet

As per the Spanish outlet, Everton are among three clubs in the running to sign Lenglet this summer.

The report claims that a return to Sevilla or a move to Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur could also be on the cards for the 26-year-old.

It is claimed that, if Everton can avoid relegation this season, Toffees manager Frank Lampard ‘wants’ the man who France head coach Didier Deschamps hailed as ‘world class’ following a 4-1 victory over Albania.

The verdict: No-brainer

Adding the 15-cap France defender to the squad at Goodison Park would be a superb piece of business this summer, particularly in light of what has been a leaky Everton defence at times during the 2021/22 campaign.

Despite seemingly being surplus to requirements under Xavi at Camp Nou beyond this term, Lenglet has still made 24 appearances across all competitions. That includes four starts in the Champions League as the Frenchman earned a 6.95 average Sofascore rating for his performances, winning 1.5 tackles per game.

Should Everton have hired Lampard?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Following yet another injury setback to Yerry Mina and the decline in form of Michael Keane, signing the Barcelona man – who is a close match for Bayern Munich star Dayot Upamecano stylistically (FBRef) – seems a no-brainer for Lampard.
