Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly ready to press on with further work in the transfer market after completing the loan signing Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet.
The 15-times capped France international secured a season-long loan move to Spurs on Friday evening as he became Antonio Conte’s fifth summer signing.
But the temporary addition of Lenglet will strengthen his defensive ranks as the 27-year-old looks to revive a career that has looked to flagging with the Catalan giants.
After initially enjoying success at the Camp Nou by helping Barcelona claim the La Liga title in 2018/19, Lenglet found playing time hard to come by under new head coach Xavi.
The defender did play a part in Barca’s Copa del Rey win in 2021 but was limited to just 11 starts in all competitions as his side secured Champions League qualification last season.
He will now hope to make an impact as he moves to the Premier League for the first time and secure a permanent move to North London.
The move comes just hours after Spurs confirmed the departure of Steven Bergwijn.
The Dutch winger has completed a £26.4million move to Ajax and has signed a five-year deal with the Eredivise giants.
Spurs defender told he can leave
Tottenham have reportedly told Matt Doherty he is free to leave the club this summer.
TalkSPORT have reported the Republic of Ireland international is surplus to requirements nine Premier League starts last season and looked to be working his way into Antonio Conte’s plans.
However, with new signings joining the club and a move for Middlesbrough wing-back Djed Spence still ongoing, it appears the 30-year-old’s time at the London Stadium is now over.
Doherty was heavily linked with a move back to former club Wolves last season but suggested the deal was never realistic.
Speaking in April, he told The Standard: “I didn’t come close, I never had a conversation, nothing was ever said to me.
“From my point of view, I was led to believe that I wasn’t going anywhere. I don’t know if that’s the case, that is what my point of view was.”
It remains to be seen whether Wolves will make a summer move for their former star.
Championship club ‘increasingly hopeful’ of landing Spurs winger
Sunderland are closing in on the permanent signing of Spurs winger Jack Clarke.
The former Leeds United academy star played a key role in the Black Cats promotion into the Championship last season and is now set to make a permanent switch to Wearside.
The Sunderland Echo have reported an undisclosed fee has been agreed by the two clubs as Clarke enters the final year of his contract with Spurs.
The report states the winger could even join up with Sunderland during their pre-season training camp in Portugal.
