Barcelona Defender Lenglet Nears Move to Tottenham, Rejects Saudi Interest
In a surprising turn of events, Barcelona is looking to offload defender Clement Lenglet to Tottenham Hotspur, as reported by Mundo Deportivo. It seems the Spanish giants are keen to get Lenglet off their books and have identified Tottenham as a potential destination for the Frenchman.
Lenglet, however, has expressed his desire to stay in Europe despite receiving interest from Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr. The 26-year-old is determined to continue his career in a competitive league and sees Tottenham as a perfect fit for his ambitions.
Reports suggest that a potential loan move could turn into a permanent deal, with Tottenham still in the mix to secure Lenglet’s services permanently. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has not yet responded to Bayern Munich’s latest offer for star striker Harry Kane, leaving fans in suspense about the Englishman’s future.
Bayern had given Levy a deadline of Saturday midnight to respond to their offer, but the Spurs chairman remained silent. This leaves the door open for the German giants, who remain confident of signing Kane and bringing him to Germany.
Meanwhile, Tottenham has officially announced the signing of Ashley Phillips from Blackburn Rovers. Phillips, a highly-rated young talent, has put pen to paper on a lucrative five-year contract worth around £2 million. This deal comes after Blackburn initially set an asking price of £9.5 million but were forced to lower it due to an activating £2 million release clause.
For Spurs fans, these sudden developments have added an air of excitement and uncertainty to the upcoming season. The potential arrival of Lenglet, coupled with the ongoing drama surrounding Kane’s future, has left supporters eager to see how their team will shape up in the new campaign.
As the transfer window draws to a close, all eyes will be on Tottenham, Levy, and the potential blockbuster deals that could reshape the landscape of the club. Only time will reveal if Lenglet joins Tottenham, if Kane makes his way to Bayern, and what other surprises lay in store for the North London outfit.
