The Telegraph’s Matt Law has claimed that there is a good chance Tottenham Hotspur will decide against signing Clement Lenglet permanently this summer.
However, it is also worth pointing out that the Frenchman’s task of settling into a new environment has been far from easy due to the team’s struggles this season and the managerial upheaval off the pitch.
Spanish publication Sport reported on Monday that Tottenham have been satisfied with Lenglet’s performances and have already expressed an interest in signing the centre-back permanently this summer.
The report added that the 27-year-old is not in Barcelona’s plans, who are allegedly hoping to make around €10m-€15m (£8.6m-£12.9m) from his sale this summer.
Lenglet may be heading back to Barcelona
However, Law believes that there is a good chance that the former Sevilla man will not be at Hotspur Way next season.
The journalist said on the Last Word On Spurs YouTube channel: “Currently, there is a good chance that Clement Lenglet will go back to Barcelona and won’t be signed by Tottenham.”

While Lenglet is arguably not good enough to be a regular starter for a team with Champions League ambitions, Postecoglou might feel that he is perhaps a useful option to have as a squad player.
Paying around £10m for a centre-back of his experience certainly sounds like a very good deal.
