Joan Laporta claims Tottenham should sign Clement Lenglet

Barcelona president Joan Laporta suggests that Tottenham Hotspur FC should sign defender Clement Lenglet this summer.

Barcelona President Joan Laporta also believes the fact that Lenglet will a great signing for Spurs. When he was asked that Barcelona’s returning loanees and will wage bill will impact in this transfer window, he replied:-

“I think that with Tottenham we will reach an agreement for Lenglet.

“We are also missing Dest. This almost never goes quickly.

“It depends on the other side. For us, they are all cases that would have been solved yesterday.”

Lenglet possesses brilliant ball playing quality which could suit Postecoglou’s style of play at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium near season. Spurs will be hoping to re-shape their defense this summer.
