Barça defender Clement Lenglet to finalise loan move to Tottenham
Lenglet will join the Premier League side for the forthcoming campaign
Clement Lenglet is one of the Barcelona players who are free to leave this summer and his future could be resolved soon.
The French defender must respond to Tottenham's offer but is now expected to move to the Premier League on loan next season.
With Roma out of the running (his salary was too high), Spurs became the front runners to sign Lenglet from Barcelona this summer.
The English side are not prepared to pay a fee for the centre-back, but will take on a large part of his salary for the course of the loan.
Italian side Juventus are also interested in a loan but it could be too late for them to translate that interest into a bid.
Therefore, Tottenham looks like the new home for Lenglet, who will get the chance to play on the left side of a back three under Antonio Conte.
Spurs are also in the Champions League next season, which is another plus for Lenglet as he looks to win his place in the France squad for the World Cup.
