The centre-back, according to Sport, would sign for the North London outfit on a loan deal for this season.

It is learnt that Lenglet's move to Spurs would be beneficial for both clubs. While Spurs would have the services of an experienced centre-back, Barcelona will be able to free their wage bill a bit. Also with this being a World Cup year, the defender would be keen on playing a good number of minutes on the pitch to make it to the national team, something he would find difficult in Barcelona. The Catalan giants are said to be signing Andreas Christensen with an interest in Jules Kounde.

Noted Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano has claimed that the player has reached full agreement with Spurs and is happy to join the North London outfit. The final details of this loan deal are reportedly being resolved.
