Fabrizio Romano and Matteo Moretto have both revealed that while Clement Lenglet’s move to Tottenham is not quite a done deal, the negotiations between the clubs are now at their final stages.

The speculation linking Lenglet with a loan move to Spurs has gathered a lot of steam over the last few days.

Gianluca Di Marzio reported on Wednesday that an agreement had been reached between Barcelona and the North London club regarding a season-long loan move for the Frenchman.

Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has revealed that Antonio Conte is eyeing the 27-year-old as a player who can cover both the central sweeper and left centre-back roles in his back three.

Romano has now taken to social media to reveal that Barca and Spurs are working on the final details of Lenglet’s loan move, including the centre-back’s salary details.

Meanwhile, Moretto has revealed that Barca president Joan Laporta and Daniel Levy had positive conversations and are set to hold another important meeting today.

The journalist added that Lenglet’s move to Tottenham will go through barring any last-minute surprises.

Fabrizio Romano also posted another update claiming that a new round of negotiations had been scheduled between Spurs and Barca, with the clubs set to find an agreement. He even went as far as to say that Lenglet was expected to be Spurs’ next signing.

While I am not Lenglet’s biggest fan, I am certainly willing to give the Frenchman a chance if Conte and Paratici believe he is the right fit.

I suspect the Spurs hierarchy felt that they would rather wait till next summer and splurge on Bastoni or Gvardiol, which is probably why they settled for a loan deal for Lenglet.
