The France international has become Spurs fifth summer signing, after Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, and Richarlison. Lenglet joins the club on a year-long loan deal with no option to buy.
The 27-year-old is yet to taste the Premier League demanding stamina and physicality of the games, but the player admitted that he spoke to Tottenham player before moving to London.
Telling Spurs TV, Lenglet admitted that he had multiple conversations with our captain Hugo Lloris:
“Hugo is a Tottenham legend. I spoke a lot with Hugo to know about the city and everything to ensure I am good with my family in London.”
Lenglet also added: “When you speak to a player who plays in the Premier League, they say it is a beautiful league where you fight every week and it’s very hard to win.
“I’m very happy to be here, to be in this city, at this club. I speak with friends, with my family, to take my decision. And all the words were very, very good speaking about the club.”
