Barcelona central defender Clement Lenglet wants to return to Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window, according to a report.
Sport has reported that Tottenham Hotspur want to sign Clement Lenglet from Barcelona on a permanent contract.
Lenglet spent last season on loan at Spurs from Barcelona.
Sport has added that Al Nasr of Saudi Arabia have made an offer to Barcelona for Lenglet.
The La Liga champions want to get rid of the £145,000-a-week (Spotrac) central defender and want to get him off their books on a permanent basis.
According to the Spanish publication, Lenglet is not sure about a move to Saudi Arabia and prefers a transfer to Tottenham in the summer transfer window.
The report has added that the 28-year-old France international has already agreed a three-year contract with Tottenham.
The problem is that Tottenham do not want to pay the €15 million (£13 million) transfer fee that Barcelona want for him.
Tottenham Hotspur should pay £13m for Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet
In our opinion, if Tottenham Hotspur want to sign Clement Lenglet in the summer transfer window, then they should pay the £13 million transfer fee needed.
The new Premier League season will get underway in a matter of days, and we believe that Spurs need to act now.
If Tottenham believe that the defender will make them better, then they should get a deal done now.
A transfer fee of £13 million for an established 28-year-old does not appear to be a lot, so you wonder why Spurs do not want to pay it/
Is it because they are looking at other options first?
According to The Daily Mail, Tottenham are on the verge of signing VfL Wolfsburg defender Micky van de Ven for £43 million.
During his loan spell at Tottenham last season, Lenglet made 24 starts and two substitute appearances in the Premier League.
The 28-year-old gave two assists in those games.
The French defender also made six starts and one substitute appearance in the UEFA Champions League for Tottenham last season.
Lenglet scored one goal in those games.
