Positive news continues to come from the Catalan media regarding Clement Leglet’s transfer from Barcelona to Tottenham Hotspur.
Outlet Mundo Deportivo claims that the player now has ‘permission from Barça to finish closing his loan’, and has already travelled to London to do so.
Lenglet is now set to have his medical examination this weekend, and will soon be presented as Spurs’ latest summer signing.
Mundo Deportivo points out the defender had ‘other proposals on the table’, but chose to move to Tottenham, who he considers ‘one of the greats’ in the Premier League. It’s said the confidence Antonio Conte ‘transferred to him’ was also crucial for his choice.
Earlier today, the Catalan media had already been optimistic about the transfer, with Sport claiming there was a pre-agreement between Barça and Spurs for a loan with an option to buy.
Since the player is on holiday, however, it was claimed the transfer would be sorted before Tuesday. Now this update makes it sound like Lenglet could be a Tottenham player before that, depending on when the club decide to announce things.
