Report: Conte’s Tottenham secure Barça star on loan

Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur are set to complete their fifth summer signing with the arrival of Clement Lenglet on loan, according to reports.

Spurs have been busy, having already recruited winger Ivan Perišić, goalkeeper Fraser Forster, midfielder Yves Bissouma and forward Richarlison.

But the Premier League side are not done yet with Lenglet arriving on a season-long loan, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The report suggests the deal does not include an option to buy and the France international will be back in Catalonia next season. It adds that Spurs will pay a loan fee as well as some of the wages, while Conte has already spoken to the player.

The move is the latest sign of the Conte revolution which has been ongoing since the Italian’s arrival.

The ex-Juventus and Inter coach took over a team in eighth place and led them to an improbable Champions League qualification on the final day of the campaign.

Spurs’ summer recruitment has been impressive as they seek to improve in areas where they are already strong.

  1. the top of what? they are lightyears away from City and Liverpool

    3rd at best

    That’s providing Chelsea and Arsenal don’t improve in the coming years as expected

  2. Lenglet is easily one of the worst defenders around. Positionally he is woeful. Barcelona’s downfall on the pitch has had a lot to do with him in their defence. Positionally he is clueless.

  3. Conte might be creating a monster- for someone else to sort out because he will be off to pastures new!
