Tottenham Hotspur is still in pursuit of a left-sided centre-back as Clement Lenglet fails to meet Antonio Conte’s expectations. Lenglet, currently on loan from Barcelona, is reportedly not “entirely convinced” by the coach.
According to journalist Pete O’Rourke’s Football Insider column, Tottenham has made it their top priority to secure a left-sided defender for the upcoming summer transfer window. Lenglet was brought in as a temporary signing when the club failed to acquire Conte’s first-choice centre-backs.
However, the Frenchman has not made a significant impact since his arrival in North London, leading Tottenham to reconsider signing him on a permanent basis.
Antonio Conte has not yet made a final decision on whether to sign Clement Lenglet, but according to O’Rourke, the Italian coach is not entirely convinced by the 27-year-old. O’Rourke mentioned in his report that Tottenham has prioritized signing a left-sided defender for the upcoming summer transfer window.
However, Conte’s uncertainty over Lenglet’s future may change Tottenham’s plans. The Frenchman’s uncertain future has also opened the possibility of a return to Sevilla, with the Spanish club reportedly interested in bolstering their defense by signing him.
The uncertainty surrounding Clement Lenglet’s future at Tottenham and Barcelona leaves a question mark on where he will be playing next season. However, Tottenham’s search for a top-class centre-back is well-known, and they have been linked with several options ahead of the summer transfer window.
