Clement Lenglet one step away from transferring to the Premier League. The 27-year-old French defender is not part of coach Xavi’s plans and the club’s management have opened the door for his departure, with Tottenham being very close to the firm.
British media confirm that Conte has won the race with Mourinho, and has convinced the 27-year-old to transfer to the Premier League, while the agreement between Lenglet and Tottenham has already been reached.
Meanwhile, the leaders of the English club are negotiating with those of Barcelona for the transfer of the footballer with the loan formula with the right to buy for 6-8 million euros.
Lenglet is likely to finish in London within this week and undergo medical examinations, before signing the contract and starting preparations under the orders of Antonio Contes.
The French defender was also in Rome’s plans, as Mourinho has never hidden his sympathy for him, but in the end it seems that Antonio Contes’ insistence has caused the 27-year-old to be transferred to the English capital.
