Tottenham: Journalist shares big Lenglet update -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Tottenham Hotspur supporters may have been handed a pretty significant update amid the Lilywhites’ mooted move to sign Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet.

The Lowdown: Paratici scattergun?

As Spurs continue to prepare for the 2022/2023 Premier League season, a central defensive upgrade is reliably believed to be on the agenda after sporting director Fabio Paratici sealed moves for Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster and Yves Bissouma.

Who does Conte need to sign after Bissouma?

The club are also in negotiations to sign Everton star Richarlison, and as Paratici spins many plates, his scattergun approach is in full force when it comes to their attempts to sign a new defender.

Indeed, Torino star Gleison Bremer and Bayer Leverkusen sensation Piero Hincapie have both been at the centre of possible moves from Spurs as well as Lenglet recently.

The Latest: Journalist shares big Lenglet update…

Now, as per Toni Juanmarti of major Latin sports outlet Relevo, a significant update has surfaced as Paratici attempts to sign the latter man.

He explained (via Twitter):

“Lenglet to Tottenham, now yes, he advances. Very important week. We will see…”

This follows other reports from Spain earlier in the week that an offer had been made and Lenglet was ‘close’ to agreeing to it.

The Verdict: Right man?

Lenglet’s £170,000-per-week salary (although some reports claim it’s much lower) could prove a sticking point in talks and we believe the likes of Bremer – who has stood out as one of Serie A’s best rising players in recent seasons – and Hincapie – dubbed South America’s best young defender – are far more impressive targets.

Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

If the club are to match Conte’s ambition, signing Lenglet, who has struggled for game time at Barcelona, should ideally be viewed as a last resort for Paratici and co.

Indeed, even someone like Joško Gvardiol, who has been linked from RB Leipzig, arguably comes as a more exciting target also.
